Pick of the Day: The Galileo Project

Should be a great night of music at Conexus Arts Centre with this special performance presented by the Regina Symphony Orchestra. Guest artists are the Baroque period ensemble  Tafelmusik from Toronto.

To commemorate Italian astronomer Galileo’s invention of the telescope in the 17th century they’ll be performing works by composers of that era like Monteverdi, Vivaldi, Bach and Handel against a backdrop of high-definition images from the Hubble Telescope. The show gets going at 7:30 p.m. For ticket info call 596-9555.

To give you a taste of what to expect, here’s video of Tafelmusik performing a piece by Vivaldi:

  1. I went to this; it was all very pleasant, with a charismatic narrator and interesting video show. The moon, stars, the sky…so under-rated. Made me wanna book a vacay to revolve not around sport, waterparks or shopping, but stargazing.

  2. I went to this. While it was awesome, there was no elephant playing a green piano.

    Sometimes the video mixups are awesome on your blog.
