Join Long Island Chamber Music Festival and the Vanderbilt Museum for a concert of space-themed classical music on Saturday, February 29, at 6:00 pm. The performance will take you through the stars with vivid planetarium visuals!
Long Island Chamber Music Festival is comprised of young musicians of the highest caliber. Drawn from Carnegie Hall, the New York Philharmonic, Boston Symphony Orchestra, Astral Artists, and several other of the country’s most prestigious musical institutions.
The program, focused around space and the night sky, includes works by Pulitzer Prize-winning composer Caroline Shaw, upbeat and folk-inspired planetary music by Terry Riley, and Arnold Schoënberg’s masterwork Verklarte Nacht. Each piece will be paired with a different exploration of either a planet, a galaxy, or Earth, or it will simply be a relaxing experience of the night sky.
Tickets are $20 online, $25 at the door.
The performance will begin promptly at 6:00 pm, so please arrive fifteen minutes early. All ticket holders must check in at the Admissions Desk in the Planetarium lobby upon arrival. Seating in the theater is on a first-come, first-served basis.Purchase Tickets
