Music Series with Dr. Ramona Luengen: The Golden Section
February 20, 2018 @ 7:30 pm - 9:30 pm
Tuesday Nights Adult Study Group with Dr. Ramona Luengen
“The golden ratio defines the harmony of most objects and, thus, is the most perfect expression of beauty”.
The section aurea, or golden ratio, is prevalent in much of the natural world, providing the biological configuration of everything from leaf growth to snowflakes. However, it is also found in architecture, painting and sculpture, all of which use the pattern to achieve an ideal symmetry. Join us for an enlightening evening of surprising connections, as we unpack the Golden Section, the Fibonacci sequence, Pythagoras, Plato, the Music of the Spheres, Bach, Bartok, Ligeti and Wagner. A stiff drink and sleeping bag are suggested!
