Bloomington,  Indiana– Music as an art and science are featured at First Friday Evening Science of Art: Making Music on Friday, November 2, from 5:00 pm – 8:30 pm at the WonderLab Museum of Science, Health, and Technology in Bloomington. Visitors will get to watch and talk with artist Charlie Jesseph as he demonstrates the physics of sound in the exhibit galleries using his handmade percussion instruments. Charlie, a graduate of Bloomington High School South, is an Indiana University student majoring in biology. He frequently performs with bands around town. Related visitor activities include making an African thumb piano, playing an assortment of musical instruments, and exploring the museum’s science of sound exhibits.

As an additional treat, Indiana University’s University Players will present the family musical “Captain Louie,” sponsored by the Ivy Tech/BPP Youth Education Program, and based on “The Trip” by Ezra Jack Keats. The 45-minute musical play begins at 6:00 pm and is included with museum admission. Seats will be available on a first-come, first-served basis.
