10 Sep Sunday Afternoon Concerts in the Dome: September 10 – Long Beach Symphony Sextet
Date(s) - September 10, 2023
3:00 pm - 5:00 pm
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.

Program: Brahms, Sextet in B Flat Major | Jonah Sirota arrangements of film music
