Music of the Spheres at Lick Observatory

Listen to music by Tingstad & Rumbel and a talk by Sandra Faber, UC Santa Cruz at the Lick Observatory. Also get a chance to view through the observatory telescopes. Each summer Lick Observatory hosts the Music of the Spheres concert series. Program for each includes the concert, a talk by a University of California astronomer about current research and, weather permitting, viewing with the historic 36-inch Great Lick Refractor and the Nickel 40-inch telescope. A knowledgeable group of local amateur astronomer volunteers provide additional viewing of the sky and informal discussion of astronomy. Tickets are still available at

    Hi, Is there a possibility to attend just the telescope observation event?

      I guess you can still buy a ticket and just show up late to skip the music. You still need a ticket to park and get access to the big telescopes.

    Hi Edward
    I bought just 1 ticket, so I can bring 1 guest or shell I buy 2nd ticket for the guest? The lecture (Searching for a Second Earth) would be before the concert or after? What is road 130 condition?

      You need to buy 1 ticket per person. The lecture is after the concert. The concert is in the main hallway and the lecture is after. Mount Hamilton is a long and windy road but relatively clean/nice.
