In These Spaces – Acoustics
Are you curious about science, architecture, artifacts, history or music? Throughout the upcoming In These Spaces project, participants will explore a diverse set of subjects using the Morrin Centre’s spaces as a backdrop. Over the course of five live-streamed events, experts will talk about their field of expertise with our host.
Come enjoy the music of a string quartet and learn more about acoustics with professional musicians!
