Sunday Afternoon Concerts in the Dome

There exists a passion for comprehension, just as there exists a passion for music.” —Albert Einstein

The 100-inch Telescope dome at Mount Wilson Observatory is the same place where astronomer Edwin Hubble discovered that we are just one of many galaxies in an ever expanding Universe. It is also a 20th century temple to science with acoustics that rival the great cathedrals in Europe. Visit Mount Wilson this year to experience a bit of the awe and wonder this space inspires.

Mount Wilson Observatory welcomes you to their 2019 Sunday Afternoon Concerts in the Dome. This year will be the third season at Mount Wilson Observatory with events such as concerts, “Talks & Telescopes” nights, Engineering Tours, and more.  

On October 6, 2019, there will be a concert celebrating the music of Mozart and Brahms Quintets for Clarinet and strings with Pierre Génisson on clarinet, Ambroise Aubrun and Henry Gronnier on violins, Virginie d’Avezac on the viola, and Cécilia Tsan on the cello. Also featuring the world renown clarinetist living in Paris and also a graduate from USC, Pierre Génisson who is joined by four other French musicians living in Los Angeles.

This season of events at Mount Wilson Observatory will be led by French cellist Cécilia Tsan, who serves as the artistic director for the season. Tsan is a seasoned cellist that has played at several concert venues in France, Italy, Switzerland, England, Austria, Germany, Yugoslavia, Argentina, Brazil, Canada, US, Japan, and Taiwan.
