Mount Wilson Observatory—the place where humankind discovered its place in the universe—is pleased to announce the second date in its Sunday Afternoon Concerts in the Dome six-month series, to take place on Sunday, June 16, 2024. Treat your dad this Father’s Day to a one-of-a-kind concert experience! Back by popular demand, Trio Eclectrica dons the stage featuring Leah Zeger on violin and voice, Cory Pesaturo on accordion and Jorge Villanueva on percussion, playing in the remarkable acoustics of the dome of the 100” telescope at the Observatory. The June concert will be a carte blanche performance in which Trio Eclectrica will play an eclectic “feel good fusion” of musical favorites ranging from Puccini arias to Chick Corea to Romanian folk dances to Edith Piaf. 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.
