"After the concert, as I walked back to my car, I found myself gazing up at the night sky and its myriad stars with a new appreciation for the music of the spheres and the harmony of the world." - Heather J. Morris, Santa Cruz SentinelView the new Trailer

Galileo's Daughters is going to Hawaii - we will be performing for the 50th celebration of the Institute for Astronomy on June 27, 2017! Announcing Dava Sobel's latest book! The Glass Universe tells the story of the women who worked at the Harvard College Observatory from the late 1800s through the mid-1900s. Observatory director Edward Pickering hired them because he believed women were careful workers--and would accept lower pay than men. There was a broad field for “woman’s work”in that exciting period when photography upended astronomy.
Sarah Pillow's crossover of Henry Purcell's "O Let Me Weep" was featured in an encore broadcast from John Schaefer's WNYC New Sounds program on July 25 2016. The whole program is a great listen, (program #2209) or cue ahead to 36:30 minutes into the program to hear Sarah. WNYC New Sounds
