The Emory Chamber Music Society of Atlanta and the Center for Chemical Evolution present The Creation of the World, which explores the intersection between science and art beginning with a lively “contrapuntal” scripted conversation between two distinguished and famously accessible master teachers, Dr. David Lynn and Dr. Dwight Andrews.
This discussion will start at the very beginning of both subjects - the origin of life and the origin of music - from current scientific understanding and theories of chemical and biological origins and current theoretical and physical understanding of the origins of sound and music.
The second half of the program will be performed by the Vega String Quartet, pianist William Ransom, and an all-start cast of Emory faculty and guest artists and will open with a performance of the Adagio and Fugue from J. S. Bach’s Sonata in C for Solo Violin.
Emory's Schwartz Center for Performing Arts is located on North Decatur Road close to the intersection with Clifton Road. This webpage provides detailed directions, as well as instructions for patron drop-off and parking.
