  • Fred Kavli Theatre
  • Tickets: $120.00-$30.00
Music is one of humanity’s most treasured and enduring experiences combining physical science and human emotional response. This concert presentation is split into two parts. The first, shorter segment features Music Director Michael Christie, guest artists Jiji KimJames Grinta, and an expert in the field of physics to demonstrate how sound is created and becomes a visceral emotional response. The second segment, the concert portion of the presentation, features works that highlight composers’ use of distance, combinations of sounds and instruments to touch our hearts and souls. Choose to attend one or both presentations and enjoy a fascinating look into how energy becomes sound and sound becomes memories and emotions.

The first portion of the presentation will commence at 6:30pm and last approximately 40 minutes followed by a 20 minute intermission. The concert portion of the event will commence at 7:30pm and last approximately 70 minutes.

An additional work will be presented during the first portion of the event, Derek Bermel’s Ritornello for Electric Guitar and Strings (2011).
