Music in Space

STARTS AT 03/01/2019 5:00 pm

Inspired by the release of NASA’s Sounds of Space video which reveals that each planet has its own form of electromagnetic vibrations, and Gustav Holst’s seven-movement orchestral suite, The Planets, guests will be introduced to the fundamentals of music and astronomy. The evening will include opportunities to play with various instruments, learn about rhythm, listen to the sounds of the planets, create their own planet-inspired images and sounds, and culminate their experience with some stargazing on the Great Lawn (weather permitting).

This program was conceived by Cathedral City High School senior Nikita Marchand. Sunnylands has worked with Nikita and the Rancho Mirage Observatory to develop this program for the public.

This program is free and open to the public. Reservations are not required.
