POWERS OF TEN SONGFEST

The USA Science and Engineering Festival is being kicked off this weekend with its opening event! Be sure to attend

Join composer David Haines and more than two hundred young people and adults on an amazing voyage through the magnitudes from the human scale right down to string theory via fingers, fleas, amoebae, bacteria, viruses, atoms and quarks – then back up the magnitudes via landscape, tectonic plates, Earth, Moon, Sun and Solar System, black holes and galaxies.

The twenty-odd songs of Powers of Ten are bursting with musical flavors that evade description: a touch of classical, a soupcon of jazz, a dash of pop, a sprinkle of rap. The lyrics are fact-packed, often hilarious – and occasionally even tug at the heart strings. Who’d have thought a song about the wonders of Bacteria could evoke tears? But it does…

Join us in the gorgeous Elsie & Marvin Dekelboum Concert Hall of the Clarice Smith Performing Arts Center on the University of Maryland, College Park campus for a concert quite unlike any you’ve heard before!
