Join us for The Sounds of Science (Webinar) on Thursday, March 18 at 1 PM.

Buzz, crackle, bang! Whether we enjoy life’s simple symphony of sounds or not, it is all around us. Critical to our way of life, the sounds we hear have a science behind it that is powerful and deafening; musicians have studied the science of these vibrations to create the musical masterpieces we enjoy today. Join Rollins College Physics Professor Thomas Moore as he shares these findings, introducing you to the science of sound through the study of musical instruments. In this virtual demonstration, Professor Moore will discuss how musical instruments make sound and why some combinations of notes sound pleasing and some don’t.

By participating in this program, you can expect to also learn:

  • how sound is produced by moving air;
  • how sounds can interfere with each other;
  • and why some sounds “fit together” well and are pleasing to listen to and some do not.

This program is presented by Thomas Moore and is hosted by the Winter Park Health Foundation.
