The Science of Beauty, with the Arianna String Quartet
What is the science behind beautiful music making? Join the Arianna String Quartet and UMSL Professor of Biophysics, Sonya Bahar, at UMSL Grand Center on Monday, December 3rd, at 7:30 PM, for a fascinating evening that will illuminate and explore connections between physics and the artistry of musical expression. In this engaging and interactive evening, the ASQ and Professor Bahar will examine principles of friction, inertia, gravity, and kinetic energy, and will demonstrate how these fundamental aspects of physics factor into the interpretive process for a string quartet. Come enjoy an inspiring and informative evening discovering how playing a string instrument requires an individual commitment to the unification of the arts and sciences. Part of the First Mondays with the ASQ series at UMSL Grand Center.
