Event Details

Internationally recognized wind quintet WindSync presents “Voyager”, a space-themed concert combining music, multimedia, and science. The program commemorates the 40th anniversary of NASA’s Voyager interstellar mission, which carried the sights and sounds of Earth into the solar system and beyond. WindSync will perform music included on the Voyager Golden Records, curated by a committee led by astrophysicist Carl Sagan, interspersed with audio recordings of natural events and projected images. The quintet will also share cosmically-inspired classical music including Offenbach’s “Overture to A Trip to the Moon” and excerpts of Gustav Holst’s “The Planets”.

The program will feature a mini-lecture from space scientist Dr. Paul Schenk. Before participating in NASA’s DAWN and Cassini missions and working as a co-investigator for the New Horizons mission to Pluto, Schenk was an intern during the Voyager 2 Jupiter encounter. He will introduce the audience to the Voyager mission, discuss its major scientific and philosophical advances, and share some of the “music” that it has sent back to Earth in the form of data. Dr. Schenk appears thanks to a partnership with Houston’s Lunar and Planetary Institute (LPI).
