Look. Learn. Listen. This unique program is a collaboration between Strings Music Festival and Yampatika. The evening will feature visiting Young Artists, 511 Brass, playing classical and celestial themed music. Throughout the evening, CMC Professor Paul McCudden will teach basic astronomy as the sun sets and stars rise in the summer night sky. Telescopes will be onsite for stargazing in what will be a magical evening outdoors.
For an enjoyable evening, remember to bring a light jacket or sweater. Seating are folding chairs onsite at the historic Legacy Ranch, so please feel free to bring camp chairs or blankets to picnic, and wear good shoes for walking on uneven ground. Coffee and tea will be available for a small donation, and you are welcome to bring your own beverages to enjoy throughout the program, including beer or wine.
