On Friday evening, November 4, County College of Morris will offer a unique journey through the stars accompanied by music from around the world. “Cosmic Resonance” is an innovative collaboration between world musician Andy Wasserman and County College of Morris astronomer Christopher Fenwick. The 1 ½ hour show will take place in the college’s recently remodeled Longo Planetarium. In addition to the spectacular, digitally-produced projections of the cosmos, the program offers native sounds from West African, Middle Eastern, Asian and Native American cultures performed live by Wasserman on an array of instruments.
A “Meet the Artist” reception with refreshments will follow the performance.
Wasserman draws on an astonishingly diverse range of experiences in the music industry. His original compositions, arrangements and instrumental performances have appeared on many recordings and soundtracks for TV, radio and film productions on NBC, CBS and ABC, as well as A&E, Lifetime, the History Channel, the Travel Channel, TBS, Nickelodeon, the Turner Network, QVC and The Learning Channel. Internationally, his work has been heard around the world in countries that include Japan, Argentina, Finland, Ireland, Australia, Brazil, Mexico, South Africa, Spain, the United Kingdom and France.
“Cosmic Resonance: A Concert Within Worlds Under the Stars” will be performed from 7:30 p.m. to 9 p.m. The Longo Planetarium is located in Sheffield Hall. Free parking is located on campus.
