USA Science & Engineering Festival Opens with Live Powers of Ten Concert

Festival of Science and Technology – Opening Program: The Powers of Ten – A Journey in Song from Quark to Cosmos.WHAT:
Powers of Ten – A Journey in Song from Quark to Cosmos : Opening program of the USA Science & Engineering Festival.

WHEN:
Sunday, October 10, 2010, 5:00 – 7:00 p.m.

WHERE:
Elsie and Marvin Dekelboum Concert Hall , Clarice Smith Performing Arts Center, University of Maryland.

BACKGROUND:
Join composer David Haines and more than two hundred singers from the Washington, D.C. area on an amazing musical voyage from quark to cosmos.

The twenty-odd songs of Powers of Ten are bursting with musical flavors that evade description: a bit of classical, a touch of jazz, a dash of pop, a sprinkle of rap. By the time you’re done, Powers of Ten will have taken you on a wild ride that starts with human beings and scales downward to fingers, fleas, amoebae, viruses and finally to quarks. The return ride scales up from earth to sky and beyond – landing finally in the cosmos of black holes and galaxies.

The lyrics are fact-packed, often hilarious – and occasionally even tug at the heart strings.
