Einstein Music Gala at SLAC


On November 8, SLAC will host a special gala evening of music in celebration of the World Year of Physics, timed to coincide with the 100th anniversary of the publication of Albert Einsteinís three most important discoveries.

The event will be held in the Panofsky Auditorium. It will begin with a reception at 6:00 pm.  Free tickets will be available on a first-come-first-serve basis at the Communications Office, please see Melinda Lee (Bldg. 40, Room G106) for your invitation.

Einstein said, ďI often think about music.  I daydream about music.  I see my life in the form of music.Ē  To honor Einsteinís scientific achievements and his love of violin music, the outstanding British violinist Jack Liebeck will appear in concert with pianist Charles Owen. Prior to the concert, Liebeck will join Oxford University Professor Brian Foster in a lecture entitled From Einstein to Superstrings. The lecture will highlight Einsteinís appreciation of classical music as well as his scientific legacy.
