Sunday Afternoon Concerts in the Dome: July 14, 2024

Date(s) - July 14, 2024

Artistic Director Cécilia Tsan curates thoughtful musical adventures
under the magnificent vaulted dome of the 100-inch telescope. 

The 100-inch telescope is the instrument with which astronomer Edwin Hubble discovered our place in an expanding universe and so expanded our comprehension. The dome for the telescope—designed by Chicago architect D.H. Burnham—is a 20th century temple to science whose acoustics rival the great cathedrals of Europe and provides a unique setting for this ambitious music series.

Eclipse String Quartet: Sara Parkins (violin), Sarah Thornblade (violin), Alma Fernandez (viola), and Maggie Parkins (cello).

A reception will be held outside the dome at 4 PM. Light refreshments will be served.

PLEASE NOTE: Access to the dome performance level is via a 53-step staircase. Mount Wilson Observatory is a mile high in elevation so the air is noticeably thinner. There is no ADA-compliant access.
