For 50 minutes on Wednesday morning, hundreds of elementary students from Santa Maria and Orcutt schools were treated to scenes of soaring butterflies and birds, videos of humanity's successful (and unsuccessful) attempts to fly and images of celestial bodies taken by the Hubble Space Telescope set to a soundtrack of classical and modern symphony pieces. The Santa Maria Philharmonic has offered children's concerts for more than a decade, but this marked only the second time that the group performed "Fly Me to the Moon: From JS Bach to Mr. Spock." Held at the Pacific Christian Center in Santa Maria, a second group of students is set to attend the performance Thursday morning.
