Description: Join us for a night of flames, smoke and color-changing liquids. Prof. Bassam Shakhashiri brings the lab right to you. His stunning demonstrations will explain some of the chemistry happening all around us every day.

Shakhashiri is an expert at communicating science. He has performed hundreds of public chemistry demonstrations around the world for people of all ages. Each year during the holidays, he does a televised science demonstration extravaganza, now in its 45th year. His message is clear: science is fun, exciting, and crucial for improving modern society.

Most of all, Shakhashiri believes that scientific knowledge is a public good that must be shared with everyone. He has devoted his career to bringing science out of the lab and sharing it with students, parents, and teachers. He has published a 5 volume series of handbooks for using chemistry demonstrations in the classroom. In 2002, he founded the Wisconsin Initiative for Science Literacy, which maintains a website (scifun.org) full of teaching resources, videos, and science experiments you can do at home.

Shakhashiri has led the scientific community as a strong advocate for education and outreach. He served as the assistant director of the National Science Foundation, and the president of the American Chemical Society. He has received numerous awards for his research, education, and advocacy including the 2013 Carl Sagan Award for the Public Understanding of Science.

Description: Thomas C. DUFFY "Heart-Throb"
Franz SCHUBERT Symphony No. 7, “Unfinished”
Gustav MAHLER “Adagio” from Symphony No. 10


Schubert’s Symphony in B Minor (No. 7), beloved for its lyrical nature, remained unfinished in the composer’s lifetime. Despite countless attempts by others to complete the piece, the unfinished version remains one of the more celebrated of Schubert’s instrumental works and has been dubbed the first Romantic symphony. In keeping with the unfinished theme, the YSO will conclude this performance with the opening Adagio from Mahler’s unfinished Symphony No. 10, the only complete movement from the composer’s final work.
