Between April 22nd and 24th, Cornwall Learning and Cornwall Music Education Hub are presenting the third tour of Cornish schools and colleges exploring ‘Einstein’s Universe’. With five lecture-recitals mostly in East Cornwall, Professor Brian Foster, Head of Particle Physics at Oxford University, and award-winning musician Jack Liebeck, present an event that highlights Einstein’s love of the violin while examining how his ideas have shaped our modern view of the universe. Students will discover more about the key concepts of modern physics that Einstein did so much to found and how these theories are being addressed today through work with the Large Hadron Colider at CERN. Jack Liebeck, one of Britain’s leading violin soloists is joined in some lectures by cellist Guy Johnston, and Prof. Brian Foster plays the violin too in the lectures. If one of the world’s leading Particle Physicists can gain much enjoyment being an amateur violinist then those who experience these lectures can gain great enjoyment being aspiring or amateur physicists too.

Lectures take place at Community School, Launceston College, Fowey Community College, Callington Community College and Penwith College, followed by a recital given by Jack Liebeck, Guy Johnston, Tim Boulton and Mark Simpson for Concerts Penzance at St. John’s Hall, Penzance at 7.30pm on Wednesday 24th April.
