"NASA Headquarters (HQ), Office of Strategic Communications, plans to host the NASA 40th Anniversary of Apollo "Salute to Apollo: The Kennedy Legacy", July 18, 2009, at the Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts with the National Symphony Orchestra. The Kennedy Center is renowned worldwide for its unique premiere location for distinctive special events. As the national center for the performing arts, the Kennedy Center honors the memory of President Kennedy and since President Kennedy is largely responsible for the Apollo program and human's first steps on the moon it is crucial for this particular performance to take place at the Kennedy Center. The Center has agreed to host the National Symphony Orchestra to perform a concert of works including Holst's "The Planets", popular, film and television music about space."
The evening event on this date is still listed as TBD at the Kennedy Center
