On Wednesday, May 1, Music, Meditation and Munchies will celebrate the music dedicated to Outer Space at 12:15 p.m. in St. John's Chapel.

"The Planets" by Gustav Holst has been transcribed for Organ by Peter Sykes. We will adapt it further to include percussion instruments of all kinds! Hear Mars (The Bringer of War), Venus (The Bringer of Peace) and Jupiter (The Bringer of Jollity) as you have never heard them before. Featuring Steve Palumbo percussionist extraordinaire!

Meditation by Global Education Program Coordinator Doug Reilly.

Each program features organ music played by Mary Ann Hamilton, Colleges Organist as well as special guests. Spoken meditation or poetry will complement the music each month and dessert will be served following each program. All are welcome and invited to bring a lunch. The series is held from September-December and from February-May.
