JOHNSON CITY — If you have an affinity for eclectic concerts, science or both, then make plans to attend the Isotone concert early next month.
The event is set for Monday, Feb. 6, at 7:30 p.m. in the East Tennessee State University Martin Center for the Arts.
“Isotone has a double meaning of importance to musicians and scientists. Isotone means a single tone. Isotone also refers to any of the nuclides that have the same number of neutrons but different numbers of protons,” said Dr. Sean Hawthorne, a cellist and assistant professor in the Department of Music at ETSU. “Come out for what will be an engaging and fun concert.”
Hawthorne will be joined by Susan Eddlemon, violin; Scott Eddlemon and Larry Spivack, percussion; and Adam Schneider, guitar.
Works of New York composer Larry Spivack will be featured, including a world premiere celebrating the scientific accomplishments of Eastman Chemical Company. The audience will also be introduced to an assortment of percussion instruments, including the patented “Cymbal Guy.”
Admission is free and open to the public. A livestream link is available for those who cannot attend in person: youtu.be/66qctlCn0fU.
The Martin Center is located at 1320 W. State of Franklin Road, across from the main campus of ETSU.
