Variations on a Space Exploration Theme
A family collaboration between MET Opera violinist, Shem Guibbory, and his niece, Dr. Dorit Donoviel, from the Baylor College of Medicine Center for Space Medicine. Together, they will explore creativity and risk-taking in music and medicine as humanity readies to send explorers to deep space.
Dr. Donoviel will discuss what it will take to enable humans to safely venture out into the universe to explore, live, and discover. Mr. Guibbory will close the presentation with a live performance of the Chaconne written by J.S. Bach, for solo violin. This performance will be part of his interactive series Journey of 100 in which he is exploring the “inner space” that is created among listeners, himself and this incomparable musical composition.
