In an otherworldly convergence of talents—singer-songwriter Sufjan Stevens, Bryce Dessner of The National, and composer Nico Muhly—give the music of the spheres a 21st-century spin in Planetarium, an evening of songs inspired by our solar system.

The firmament descends in part one with a set of atmospheric instrumental works, composed by the three artists and performed with precision by a guest quartet. In part two, the planetary paeans begin: Stevens' wistful falsetto voice traces the gauzy rings of Saturn. Muhly's analog keyboards, Dessner's guitar, and seven trombones unleash the red rage of Mars. And in an elegiac electronic waltz, a chamber ensemble gives the crestfallen Pluto—ousted but not forgotten—its musical due. *This event is currently sold out.

Venue Description: Open Wed., Fri.-Sun., 11am-6pm; Thurs., 11am-10pm; First Saturday of each month (except September), 5-11pm. $12; $8, students and seniors (62 & over). Under 19, free (as of 9/3/2014).
