Salk’s Science & Music Series

Thru Apr. 24  The third season of the Salk Institute’s Science & Music Series is currently underway, bringing together virtuosos from the worlds of music and science in imaginative ways. Jonas Salk believed there were many parallels between art and science, and that artistic expression mimics the approaches scientists employ in their research. As such, each concert features a classical or jazz performance along with a talk by one of the institute’s world-renowned scientists about their latest research. Former trustee Conrad Prebys generously donated a magnificent Steinway concert grand piano, which anchors the series. Remaining performances for the season include cellist Cicely Parnas on February 21, soprano Julia Bullock on March 20, and a duo piano concert with Sean Chen and Karen Joy Davis on April 24. 858.453.4100, ext. 2098, salk.edu/music
