Solar System

"EIGHT PLANETS AND COUNTING" OMNI DOME SHOW!

We're offering an updated version of the "Eight Planets and Counting" program!     Humanity's knowledge of the solar system has changed dramatically within the last few years.    As we know the International Astronomical Union has demoted Pluto, but astronomers have also found an array of other bodies, called "Trans-Neptunian Objects."  

The omni-dome "Eight Planets and Counting" program guides you through the solar system: from our parent star, the Sun, out to the realm beyond Neptune.   Along the way, we'll visit each of the eight planets in turn, we'll explore the Moon, and we'll fly through the asteroid belt. 

Join us for this fantastic full dome odyssey through the solar system!

It’s the height of The Great Depression, but hey – the Sycamore family could not be any less depressed. Can Alice Sycamore get her straight-laced fiancé to accept her crazy family? Amateur wrestling, ballet lessons, exiled royalty, xylophone serenades and spontaneous fireworks are the chaotic backdrop to a Romeo and Juliet story everyone can relate to.

Great Romantic Sonatas

Laura Kargul, Great Romantic SonatasCritically acclaimed pianist Laura Kargul, of the University of Southern Maine School of Music, will present a program of two masterpieces from the Romantic piano sonata literature on Friday, Oct. 19, at 8 p.m. in Corthell Concert Hall, College Avenue, USM Gorham.

Part of the USM School of Music’s Fall 2012 Spotlight Concert series, tickets cost $15 general public; $10 seniors/USM employees; $5 students/children. Reserve tickets at the Music Box Office: online at www.usm.maine.edu/music or by phone at 780-5555.

The concert is sponsored by Dr. Dahlia and Arthur L. Handman.

The performance will be repeated at The Opera House in Boothbay Harbor on Sunday, Oct. 21 at 2:00 p.m.  Tickets and information are available through the box office at 633-5159, or online at http://www.boothbayoperahouse.com/calendar

Kargul will perform the Sonata in B-Flat Major, D. 960 by Franz Schubert, and the Sonata in B Minor, Op. 58, by Frédéric Chopin.  

"I have chosen these particular works because they so fully embody the mature styles of Schubert and Chopin, two composers with whom I feel an extremely strong connection," says Kargul.  "These are their last sonatas, and they were written within only 16 years of each other.  But Schubert and Chopin are so vastly different in character, culture and their use of musical language that these works seem worlds apart.  What they do share is a profound metaphysical quality, manifested in meditative, highly expressive passages, contrasting with dramatic outbursts of great exuberance and fire. 

"It’s always interesting to hear how post-Beethoven composers handled the sonata, that most classical of forms.  Beethoven’s impossibly high standard cast a shadow far into the nineteenth century. Some composers were intimidated, but not Schubert and Chopin. They embraced their innate Romantic sensibilities and made the sonata truly new and fascinating, poetic, exciting and stunningly beautiful.  Hearing these two monumental works back to back can be enlightening, inspiring, and, most of all, moving."  

Known especially for her playing of the virtuosic Romantic repertoire by composers such as Liszt and Chopin, Kargul has also garnered widespread critical acclaim for her mastery of Schubert:  

"How convincingly powerful and poetic, deeply lyrical and profound, will Kargul’s playing of Schubert's work be judged."  Wiesbadener Kurier (Wiesbaden, Germany)

"Laura Kargul performed the Schubert with great technical discipline and musical organization. She did the truly impossible: she downright sang on the piano."  Hessische/Niedersachsische Allgemeine  (Kassel, Germany)

Kargul is known as well for her informative and humorous comments from the stage.  “I love teaching as much as performing,” says Kargul.  “Audience members really seem to appreciate the opportunity to learn about this art form. Knowing more about the composers and their music vastly enhances the listening experience.”

Kargul has been the director of the keyboard program at USM since 1989.  A resident of Freeport, Maine, she has appeared as a soloist, chamber musician, adjudicator, lecturer and master class technician throughout Europe and the USA, as well as in Canada and the West Indies. Her solo performances have been greeted with critical acclaim in venues such as the Amsterdam Concertgebouw, the Schleswig-Holstein and Nordhessen Music Festivals in Germany, the Evian Music Festival in France, and the Lesvos Arts Festival in Greece.

IBEX: The Search for the Edge of the Solar System

An omni-dome (full dome) presentation about the IBEX (Interstellar Boundary Explorer) probe.      Launched in 2008, the IBEX craft collects energized neutral particles emitted from the heliosphere: the "bubble" enclosing the solar system.   These collections enable the IBEX probe to construct an image of the membrane surrounding us.  The same membrane that protects the solar system from harmful galactic particles.

How does the IBEX probe work?    How does it communicate with Earth?

Join us for this fascinating full-dome show about the IBEX probe and its bold mission to explore the solar system's final frontier. 

Show duration:  31 minutes

(Note: show presentation includes a night sky tour, so the entire program is approximately 45 minutes.)

For more information about this probe, visit http://ibex.swri.edu/
