We'll sing about the Universe while you tour the Air and Space museum!
Examine methods used to study the night sky throughout the ages, and
learn about the early Native American astronomy as well as the latest
astronomical research. Family Day: Explore the Universe starts at
10AM Saturday April 19, 2008 at the National Air and Space Museum
at 6th and Independence Ave. SW, Washington DC. We start singing
This program is produced in partnership with the National Museum of
the American Indian.
The Chromies have made a tradition of participating in Family Day.
It is always a thrill for us to sing our AstroCappella songs at
the base of the Hubble Space Telescope!
The Chromatics' AstroCappella project is a marriage of music
and astronomy---over a dozen original "astronomically
correct" a cappella songs that describe the wonders of
modern astronomy to students and the general public. The
songs are targeted right at those people who are enthusiastic
and curious about space and science, and want to know more. Plus,
it's a great excuse to visit Washington DC in early Spring!
In addition to the Chromatics science concerts, many other
hands-on activities and unique projects and demonstrations will
be presented by community groups.
