Music Under the Dome




The Chaminade Music Club presents a Mandolin Quartet chamber music concert under the dome in the Planetarium. Hear musicians from the Metropolitan Opera Orchestra on mandolin, violin, viola, and cello, led by Joyce Balint.

The program features the world premiere of Mandolin on the Moon, composed by Pamela Sklar. Inspired by The Color of the Moon: Lunar Painting in American Art, the piece expresses the excitement of the race to the moon and pays homage to Greek and Roman mythology through tempo changes, instrumental choices, and a variety of string techniques.

Please note, this program will take place in the Planetarium in place of the 3:30pm planetarium show.
