Connections: Science and Music
Endangered species, synapses and neurons, condensation and precipitation-- are these terms from a science course or a music class? In this fast-paced, multimedia performance by NSO cellist Yvonne Caruthers with her NSO colleagues Natasha Bogachek, violin and Stephen Dumaine, tuba, students hear and see how a melody can be played on a laundry hose (or a tuba); how instrument makers are responding to the near-extinction of their favorite trees; and whether a violinist can break a world speed record... don't miss it! For age 9 and up.
David and Alice Rubenstein are the Presenting Underwriters of the NSO.
