Science + Music at the Philadelphia Science Festival
We are partnering with the Franklin Institute to present Science + Music on April 27 as part of the 2018 Philadelphia Science Festival—join us to explore the mechanics of the organ and the science of sound! The program includes pipe-making demonstrations and organ tours by C.B. Fisk builders, as well as hands-on experiments for scientists of all ages. Hunt with members of International Contemporary Ensemble for the locations in the sanctuary where percussion instruments vibrate sympathetically with the organ, and help us set up for a performance of composer Alvin Lucier's Sizzles. (See a video of our initial Sizzles tests below.)
Science Festival activities will be from 3:00-5:00pm. ICE and Christ Church organist and music director Parker Kitterman perform Sizzles and work by Phyllis Chen at 7:00pm. Both events are all ages, free, and do not require registration.
