Prelude to the Planets: A Symphony of Stars, Light & Music

FUN FOR THE WHOLE FAMILY! Join the Talcott Mountain Science Center and the Hartford Symphony Orchestra for an exciting and enlightening evening celebrating the planets with music, a light show and observing the night sky from the top of Talcott Mountain.


We’ll kick off the evening with fun, hands-on activities that explore music and sound, then head into the planetarium to learn about the night sky and watch a dazzling light show that combines music, light and movement, choreographed to excerpts from Holst’s symphonic masterpiece “The Planets.” The evening culminates outdoors with telescopes and iPads to view Mars, Jupiter and other gems in the night sky.
