Jim Wetherbee, US Astronaut Hall of Fame Inductee, will present the relationship between two of his passions, space and music.
Wetherbee 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 on drums 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.
He is a veteran of six space flights, logging almost 1,600 hours in space and the first American to command five space missions.
