The performance features Rites of Spring Ensemble (R o S Ensemble), a new group that embodies the spirit of the new music culture and is dedicated to performing innovative, collaborative, and exciting works of living composers and the contemporary works from composers of the recent past. Whether you’re a classical lover or a lover of extraordinary experiences, Music in The Sky pushes the boundaries of a traditional music event. This program presents new music by Rohwer, Psathas, Reich, Roche, Goliov, Villa-Lobos and Richter for a very exciting evening of music and stargazing! R o S Ensemble aims by bringing people together, and focusing on what is happening today in the global arts world. Come and slow down with us, be immersed with music, lights and stars! Following the concert, Observatory staff will provide guided tours of the night sky (weather permitting) through our many telescopes on site, including the apochromatic Zerochromat telescope in our historic observation dome.
