Last night we were at a wonderful concert by Tafelmusik, The Galileo Project: The Music of the Spheres, celebrating the International Year of Astronomy, particularly the 400th anniversary of the development and use of Galileo's telescope. Did you know his father was a professional musician? Neither did I. It was a great show - I heartily agree with this review.
Fun highlight? The Astronomical Drinking Song, composed around 1800. Read the lyrics here.
Other fun fact? I may be the only romance writer to dedicate a book to an astronomer, Dr. Geoffrey Clayton.
And in a "hey, cool!" moment, I'm pretty sure I was sitting behind noted Canadian actor R.H. Thompson.
