Jim Wetherbee, U.S. Astronaut Hall of Fame Inductee, will present on the relationship between two of his passions, space and music on November 9 at the Universalist Unitarian Fellowship of Central Oregon. Wetherbee will be available for autograph signing and is donating a pair of autographed drumsticks and a piece of space travel memorabilia to be raffled at the event, a fundraiser on behalf of the Cascade School of Music’s search for a new home.
Wetherbee will perform with the Cascade School of Music’s Anything but Vanilla student rock band, followed by a presentation of his experience in space, weaving in the importance of music. The event begins at 5:30pm with hors d’oeuvres and wine, and the presentation beginning at 7pm. The event location is the Universalist Unitarian Fellowship of Central Oregon at 61980 Skyline Ranch Rd., Bend. The event is open to guests of all ages.
“Jim Wetherbee’s engaging perspective on space and music on November 9 will deliver an important message to guests: the youth of Central Oregon can shoot for the stars with music education provided by the Cascade School of Music” said Robert Lambeth, Executive Director of the Cascade School of Music.
Wetherbee is a veteran of six space flights, logging almost 1,600 hours in space. He is the first American to command five space missions.
In addition to being a member of the astronaut rock and roll band, Max Q, Wetherbee is an honorary member of the Musicians’ Union Local 47 and a member of the American Federation of Musicians in Los Angeles.
