Live music and science mingle to create a special show at the Delta Planetarium

Live music and stunning views light up the night skies in January. Step inside the Delta College Planetarium for a special event, “Music Under the Stars.”

During the show, a group of musicians from the Saginaw Bay Symphony Orchestra will perform live music choreographed to unique visual effects inside the Planetarium’s Dome360 Theater.                                                                                                                 
“This is part of our efforts to offer more programs that mix music, art, and immersive space,” said Mike Murray, astronomer and manager of the Delta College Planetarium.

Musical selections planned for the show include “Postludes” by Elliot Cole, “Akadinda Trio” by Emmanuel Sejourne, and “Rain Tree” by Toru Takemistsu. The instruments you’ll hear during the performance include vibraphones, marimbas, and percussion. On the screen, Murray promises you’ll see space-scapes and surrealistic environments.

The show is at 6:30 and 8 p.m. Fri., Jan. 31 at the Delta College Planetarium, 100 Center Ave. Tickets are $15 and must be purchased in advance. Tickets are free to children 10 and under. For tickets, visit the Delta College Planetarium website.
