Imagine how amazing would be listening to beautiful jazz music in a dome more than a mile above L.A. Actually, you don’t have to imagine, you can experience it during mountaintop concert series.

The Mount Wilson Observatory is hosting a pair of concerts this summer (an abbreviated version of its usual season) inside the dome of its 100-inch Hooker telescope, which was the largest telescope in the world for much of the first half of the 20th century.

The August 1st performance is already SOLD OUT so hurry up and buy your tickets for show on Sunday, September 5th. There will be shows at 3 and 5 p.m.

On September 5th, the iconic jazz trio will return to enchant our ears. Led by Weather Report drummer extraordinaire Peter Erskine, Lounge Art Trio will offer a freewheeling selection of standards and original tunes in the observatory’s unique and historic venue. The performance will be acoustic, without amplification, promising that the full tonality of the instruments and the dynamic control these musicians possess will be fully appreciated by the audience. Come and enjoy – quoting Peter Erskine himself, “This Dome has some of the best acoustics in the world!”

Tickets cost $50 (that also includes access to the historical exhibit at the observatory) and it’s highly recommended that you buy them in advance since seating is limited. You’ll need to be able to climb 53 steps to reach the dome, and children under 12 aren’t permitted. In addition, the observatory asks that attendees bring proof of vaccination.
