Join the University of Arizona Wind Ensemble as we unite with faculty and students from the UArizona Department of Astronomy to provide a truly unique and interstellar experience!

On April 29, the Wind Ensemble will feature music that directly connects with the cosmos, including “Event Horizon” by Joni Greene and the incredible new multimedia symphony by Julie Giroux, “The Blue Marble.” Enjoy stargazing through scientific telescopes with the UArizona Astronomy Club in the Arts District before and after the concert, along our special guest, Dr. Dan Marrone from the Department of Astronomy!

Marrone is one of the leading scientists of the global Event Horizon Telescope project that put the University in the news a while back with the first photos of a black hole. Marrone will be in person at the concert to discuss his work on the Event Horizon Telescope. Greene will be on hand virtually to converse with Dr. Marrone and to compare scientific and artistic perspectives.

Greene, the composer of the piece, Event Horizon, grew up in a scientific household (her father was a physicist), and she has always had a serious interest in the cosmos. She is now embarking on a multi-year project of composing works dedicated to the James Webb Telescope.

“The Blue Marble” is focused upon the earth, and it uses three screens with images and sound effects that are synced to the performance.

Guests include:

  • UArizona Astronomy Club
  • Arizona Sciences Center (Phoenix)
  • Mt. Lemmon SkyCenter
  • Reach for the Stars (A non-profit program in Tucson that emphasizes astronomy in helping to support mental health in the community.)
  • Dr. Sarah Sutton, a scientist with the UArizona Lunar and Planetary Lab
