Objects at an Exhibition

objects at an exhibition

The Science Museum is offering visitors an opportunity to see some of its most iconic exhibits in a different light, as their inventiveness is celebrated through specially commissioned pieces of music.

Re-imagining Mussorgsky’s ‘Pictures at an Exhibition’ for the 21st century, Aurora Orchestra presents a series of six world premiere performances, commissioned by NMC Recordings, exploring the museum’s popular collections.

Each piece is performed in the areas surrounding the objects which inspired the composition. These include the London-to-York mail coach, Charles Babbage’s Difference Engine, 2L0 (the BBC’s first radio transmitter), and the Flight Gallery.

Devised in collaboration with director Tim Hopkins, the walk-through performance is the first ever orchestral concert to take its inspiration from the museum’s galleries.  

This is a one-off opportunity to hear remarkable cutting-edge music inspired by the creative genius behind the exhibits, in an atmospheric evening performance.

Objects at an Exhibition is on Saturday 3 October at 7.30pm. Tickets priced £25, £15 students
