Cellist Jeffrey Zeigler  has performed as part of the Kronos Quartet, as well as with Laurie Anderson, Roomful of Teeth, and Vijay Iyer. Co-curated with Austin, Texas-based bandleader Graham Reynolds, The Sound of Science (2018) features works by seven composers, who chose eight influential scientists and created pieces inspired by their life and research. The Connecticut premiere will feature Pastaza, which reflects on the work of Wesleyan's Robert Schumann Professor of Environmental Studies, Professor of Earth and Environmental Sciences and Biology, Chair of the Environmental Studies Program, and Director of the College of the Environment Barry Chernoff.

Presented in partnership with Wesleyan’s College of the Environment.
