Kepler's Harmony of the World: A Celestial Chorus

Where does the musical scale come from? Is it merely a human invention? In 1619, the astronomer Johannes Kepler showed in his "The Harmony of the World" that not only are the ratios that form the major and minor scales coherent with the principles of constructive geometry, but they are built into the very stars themselves—that is, the motions of the planets of our solar system, as moved by their choral conductor, our Sun.

On September 20, 2020, Megan Dobrodt presented Class 5 of the Summer Concert Series, on Johannes Kepler's Harmony: A Celestial Chorus.

These classes are free. Donations are greatly appreciated.

While we continue to diligently prepare with virtual rehearsals for the time when we will be able to return safely to public events, we hope you continue to enjoy taking this time with us to delve into some of the secrets of classical art.

Thanks for your continued support during the crisis. Donations can also be made in monthly installments of any amount to fit your budget!
