Event description
The Rites of Spring Music Festival returns to Custer Observatory, presenting this 7th edition live performance outdoors under a NoFo sunset!

About this event

New Music Under the Big Sky will take you on a journey to create an immersive musical evening like nothing you have experienced before. The performance features Rites of Spring Ensemble (R o S Ensemble), a new group that embodies the spirit of the new music culture and is dedicated to performing innovative, collaborative, and exciting works of living composers and the contemporary works from composers of the recent past.

Whether you're a classical lover or a lover of extraordinary experiences, New Music Under the Big Sky pushes the boundaries of a traditional music event. This program presents new music by Rohwer, Psathas, Reich, Roche, Goliov, Villa-Lobos and Richter for a very exciting evening of music and stargazing!

R o S Ensemble aims to bring people together and focus on what is happening today in the global arts world. Come and slow down with us, be immersed with music, lights and stars!

Following the concert, Observatory staff will provide guided tours of the night sky (weather permitting) through our many telescopes on site, including the apochromatic Zerochromat telescope in our historic observation dome.
