Mount Wilson Observatory—the place where humankind discovered its place in the universe—is pleased to announce the third date in its Sunday Afternoon Concerts in the Dome six-month series, to take place on Sunday, July 14, 2024. The concert will feature performances by Eclipse Quartet featuring Sara Parkins and Sarah Thornblade, on violins, Alma Fernandez on viola, and Maggie Parkins on cello, playing in the remarkable acoustics of the dome of the 100” telescope at the Observatory. The July concert will feature compositions by Philip Glass and Osvaldo Golijov. The same concert will be offered twice: first at 3:00pm and again at 5:00pm.

Each year, the six-month series, featuring classical or jazz programs, is thoughtfully curated by Artistic Director Cécilia Tsan (Principal Cellist, Long Beach Symphony). An artist reception with light fare and refreshments is offered between the performances. Tickets cost $60 each and are available for purchase online in advance (highly recommended) or at the door, given availability. For more information on the concert series, please visit https://www.mtwilson.edu/concerts, where tickets for this and future concerts are available.

Seating inside the historic dome is limited. Access to the dome performances is via a 53-step staircase. Mount Wilson Observatory sits at a mile-high elevation so the air is noticeably thinner. There is no ADA-compliant access.

MWO’s “Map” page shows various SoCal routes to the 2 and 210 Freeways, which feed into Angeles Crest Highway leading to Red Box Road, which then leads to Mount Wilson Circle Road: https://www.mtwilson.edu/1map/ PLEASE NOTE: Do not use Apple Maps for directions to MWO. If you are directed to Pasadena, those are MWO’s offices, not where the Observatory is.
