An Evening with Alan Lightman with Brian Raphael Nabors

Presented by The Well at The Well, Cincinnati OH

Feb 08 2024
An Evening with Alan Lightman with Brian Raphael Nabors

Our Quest for Meaning: Music, Science and Wonder.

Join us for an evening of music, wonder, and inspiring conversation. This event will be the starting point for The Wonder Commission– a new music commission for The Well’s Mindful Music Moments program.

Alan Lightman, writer, physicist, and professor at MIT, will join contemporary composer Dr. Brian Raphael Nabors in a wide-ranging conversation about time, the cosmos, nature, and meaning. Conversation will be facilitated by The Well Executive Director & Found Stacy Sims, with interstitial music performed by The Antigone Music Collective. Introductions by astronomer Dean Regas and retired nuerosurgeon Dr. John Tew.

Lightman’s recent three-part PBS special, Searching: Our Quest for Meaning in the Age of Science, is a great primer to the night’s conversation.

Space is limited for this intimate and inspiring evening.
