The Galileo Project and Astronomy
The public is invited to participate in a discussion featuring Tafelmusik double bassist Alison Mackay and Penn State Department of Astronomy and Astrophysics senior lecturer Chris Palma, about the orchestra’s The Galileo Project: Music of the Spheres. Mackay speaks about the project’s development and imagery. She also shares musical excerpts from the project. Palma puts the project into historical context and compares the scientific achievements of Galileo’s time with today’s accomplishments. The one-hour event includes, weather permitting, an optional observation of the stars.
