Acadia Night Sky Festival: Galileo's Daughters

Perpetual Motion: Galileo and His Revolutions is a multimedia concert describing a remarkable moment in history of science, human thought, and music, performed by Galileo's Daughters with narration by acclaimed science writer Dava Sobel.

Galileo’s Daughters was founded by soprano Sarah Pillow in 2001 to present a different kind of early music recital that combines music, spoken word, and the visual arts to create thought-provoking and intriguing programs. Praised for her “gorgeous” singing (Sunday London Times), Sarah and Mary Anne Ballard, viola da gamba, along with special guests, present performances that clarify the vibrant relationship between science, the arts, human thought, and faith."
