The concert series promotes musicians and their craft, provides people across all income levels with an opportunity to experience live music performances, while learning about our important research and conservation work.
Science and music are actually closely related. It is the interaction of sounds, tempo, and pitch that creates music, just as facts and knowledge, combined with imagination and conjecture produces new scientific discoveries. And if you listen, you can hear dolphins, whales and a myriad of living things, together with currents and tides, performing a symphony that reverberates throughout the marine environment.
