Sea to Shining Sea

When: Jan. 9-10 2015

"What I'm trying to get out of the story is the idealism." That's how composer James Horner has described his work on Apollo 13, and why music from that film fits so nicely into Sea to Shining Sea, the Colorado Springs Philharmonic Pops paean to patriotism scheduled for Friday and today at 8 p.m. at the Pikes Peak Center (190 S. Cascade Ave., pikespeakcenter.com). Among the dozen or so compositions that Thomas Wilson will conduct are "America" from West Side Story and of course, "America the Beautiful." For the record, Horner admits that idealism "is a very elusive thing to bring out with a flute, but that's what I want." Tickets run from $19 to $61. — Kirk Woundy

Price: $19-$45
