Experience a sensational blend of science + music as The Franklin Institute presents an extraordinary event, the premiere of Jazz in the Planetarium—a truly unique evening series designed for adults and hosted by Chief Astronomer Derrick Pitts.

As you sit under the stars of the iconic domed Planetarium, cocktail in hand, listen as Pitts narrates the cosmos during a special version of the popular show The Sky Tonight—with the sweet live sounds of Arpeggio Jazz Ensemble in the background.

After the show, Arpeggio performs a blend of energetic, multi-rhythmic arrangements and soft, contemplative melodies, as the Planetarium connects with their sounds to provide a visual experience like none other.

6:30pm: Cocktails available for purchase in Planetarium Hall
7:00pm: The Sky Tonight narrated by Derrick Pitts accompanied by Arpeggio.
7:30pm: Live performance by Arpeggio.

Your winter destination for live jazz under the stars, the Fels Planetarium, provides an exciting astronomical experience by pairing stunning high-definition visuals with state of the art technology in a fully immersive theater atmosphere.

Arpeggio Jazz Ensemble
A permanent segment in the infinite collage of Jazz music since 1979, Arpeggio’s repertoire includes original and standard composition, providing a versatile sound that appeals to a variety of audiences. Arpeggio shares their creative energy at jazz festivals and concerts in Brazil, Europe, South America, and the Caribbean, and are involved in several community educational programs and workshops on the history of jazz. Arpeggio’s true essence is revealed in their live performances, with “The Drumbeat Is the Heartbeat” as their motto.
