Family Science Series program “The Aquarium” combines music & ocean life

You’re invited to purchase tickets to The Aquarium: A Marine Micro Ballet on Saturday, March 5 at 2:00 PM at The Center! This family-friendly show is the third program in our 2021-2022 Family Science Series.

The Aquarium is a creation of musician Susan McDonald, in which she combines original music with footage of wildlife, creating live performances in which she is the “orchestra” and the animals are the “dancers.” The subjects are live animals who seem to dance to her music, while in reality, Susan has composed her music to flow naturally with the movements of the animals.

While a bit of creative editing is involved, the animals have given their approval by acting beautifully, humorously and even sometimes outrageously. The Aquarium features the strange and funny occupants of a saltwater reef aquarium, with characters such as the cranky little Pom Pom Crab, the fabulously creative Decorator Crab and the bright red and very active Serpent Star.

Tickets are available on a “pay what you can” basis with a suggested amount of $10 per person.

The Center is committed to offering programs that are financially accessible to everyone in our community by ensuring that anyone who wants to attend can attend. If you can afford to, please consider paying extra to help support those who cannot.
