  • Science + Music | Philadelphia Science Festival

  • Join Franklin Institute science educators, C.B. Fisk organ builders, and members of International Contemporary Ensemble as we explore the science of Christ Church's newly installed pipe organ! Drop-in activities include opportunities to make and visualize musical sounds, as well as a behind-the-scenes look at the mechanical-action pipe organ. The artists of International Contemporary Ensemble, in residence at Christ Church for the year-long project In Plain Air, will engage participants in setting up for a performance of composer Alvin Lucier's Sizzles—together we'll find locations in the Christ Church sanctuary where percussion instruments layered with grains or candy hearts will vibrate sympathetically with the organ. This youth and family-focused program runs from 3:00 to 5:00pm. Participants are invited to return for a free public performance of Sizzles at 7:00pm. This event is part of the 2018 Philadelphia Science Festival. For more information:
