Bob Barboza has assembled a team of scientists, engineers, musicians, composers and arrangers to help him to create a version of Gustav Holst-Mars for elementary students in South Central Los Angeles. We are integrating robots and new electronic instruments into this production. We are bringing STEAM++ (science,technology, engineering, visual and performing arts, computer languages and foreign languages) to the schools. Bob will be touring schools and public libraries with his robots talking about his third visual jazz opera based on the “The Occupy Mars Learning Adventures.” Bob is busy writhing the ninth movement of this opera titled, “Are We Along in the Universe?” in A minor.
