Music of the Spheres

This very special program takes place on the same weekend as the Santa Fe Institute’s “Interplanetary Festival” and is an exciting event that incorporates several art forms and astrophysics. Patricia Henning, a UNM astrophysicist and member of the New Mexico Bach Chorale, presents program notes and a slide show of galaxies that she and her students have recently discovered. Santa Fe fabric and multi-media artist Joyce Melander-Smith will create a visually stunning installation for the event. NMPAS Artistic Director Franz Vote leads a vocal quartet and an ensemble of 9 instruments and keyboard in music from Bach’s Art of the Fugue and Joseph Strauss’s amazing waltz, Sphärenklänge [Music of the Spheres].
