Bach, bikes and the early generation of astronomers
Local history and global space exploration come together on this most spectacular site, the home of the ANU Astro-Physics Department. Experience a constellation of performances amidst the burnt out telescopes and other facilities on Mount Stromlo. Bach features idiosyncratically amidst new work by Michael Dooley, Susanne Stelzenbach and much more, including talks by Dan Tepfer and Prof. Brad Tucker.
