Music Under the Stars in January?

Yes!  The Discovery Museum's Planetarium presents "To the Stars and Back" on Saturday, January 22, 2011 from 6:30 p.m.-9 p.m.

This presentation in the Henry B. duPont III Planetarium is  a natural combination--timeless music played under the dome of the starlit heavens.  Music will be provided by The Haven String Quartet, an ensemble of exceptionally talented musicians who have performed around the world.  A star show will accompany and inform the musical presentation.

The program will feature "Tenebrae," an original work by Osvaldo Golijov (2000) inspired by a unique juxtaposition of events experienced within a week's time--a visit to Israel during a time of great strife followed by visit to New York's planetarium--and "String Quartet No. 5," Philip Glass, Composer (1991).  Discussion will follow.

There is limited seating so make sure to RSVP by  Thursday January 20, 2011.  The tickets are $15 per person and  $10 for Discovery Museum Members with Membership Card  Light refreshments will be offered. To reserve your tickets in advance, please call 203-372-3521 with your credit card information or send your check with name, address, telephone number, and e-mail address  to The Discovery Museum, 4450 Park Avenue, Bridgeport, CT 06604, Attn: Music Haven
