There’s a really great piece of history-making music performance happening on Yuri’s Night (12th April). For the 50th anniversary of Yuri Gagarin’s first manned spaceflight, Space Station astronaut Cady Coleman will be playing a flute duet with Jethro Tull’s Ian Anderson. They will play an excerpt from Bouree while Cady is on the ISS and Ian is on the ground in Russia. You can follow the whole thing on NASA TV on the day. You may want to start monitoring this on the 11th as there is a marathon Yuri’s Night party running for two days in Perm, the venue for the concert. Frequent updates on Twitter from Jethro Tull and Cady Coleman.
UPDATE: You can see and hear the duet on Youtube.
