Ring in a new year with Jules Verne’s novels of science, progress, and adventure. Enjoy music from “20,000 Leagues Under the Sea” (Paul J. Smith), “In Search of the Castaways” (William Alwyn), “Journey to the Center of the Earth” (Bernard Herrmann), and “Around the World in 80 Days” (Victor Young). Verne’s characters frequently venture into the unknown, yet manage to overcome all obstacles. Of course, it doesn’t hurt carry a harpoon, just in case. You could do worse than cast your lot with Verne, Nemo, Phileas Fogg, and the rest, this Saturday at 6 pm.
