    Back to Bacharach and Beyond with Christine and Elliot Spero is a show that will lovingly take you on a journey through Burt Bacharach’s greatest songs with some surprises.  Bacharach, who is considered one of the most important composers of 20th-century popular music, has composed hundreds of pop songs from the late 1950s through the 1980s, mostly in collaboration with lyricist Hal David. 

    A six-time Grammy Award winner and three-time Academy Award winner, Bacharach's songs have been recorded by more than 1,000 different artists.  He has written 73 US and 52 UK Top 40 hits. In 2015, Rolling Stone ranked Bacharach and David at number 32 for their list of the 100 Greatest Songwriters of All Time. Take the journey back in time with us. 

     

    Christine Spero is no stranger to the stage. As a teen she recorded with Neil Sedaka and Don Kirschner at RCA Records. Her song "He Wasn't Always That Way" was the USA Songwriting Competition Jazz Category winner and "Caribbean Nights" was one of the finalists. The Christine Spero Group perform her original Nu-Jazz, Latin Fusion with 2 CD releases and a third, "Spero Plays Nyro" the music of Laura Nyro. 
    Christine and multi instrumentalist, producer Elliot Spero have been recording and playing live shows with the group or as a duo for over 20 Years.

    A new type of astronomical observatory came into existence in the past decade, and in the past several years has produced amazing results. These are the gravitational wave observatories - LIGO in the United States and VIRGO in Italy. These observatories are looking for, and now are frequently finding, minute disturbances in space-time. The sources of these disturbances have proven to be the results of collisions and mergers of black holes - a process which propagates shivers in gravity throughout the universe.  What is a black hole?  How do we know they exist?  Where are they? And how are these new observatories finding them? What are NASA’s plans for building a gravitational wave observatory in space?  These are some of the questions that will be answered in this presentation.
     

    From 1997 to 2008, Dr. Charles Holmes was a senior program officer at NASA Headquarters. He was responsible for a suite of operating science missions observing the sun, the interplanetarysolar wind and their interactions with the Earthand other planets. Managing this program included overseeing the progress of the venerable Voyager satellites as they made their ways into interstellar space.   In 2008, Dr. Holmes received NASA’s Exceptional Service Medal. Prior to joining NASA HQ, he worked for the Department of Physics and Astronomy at Johns Hopkins University as the Operations Scientist for NASA’s Far-Ultraviolet Spectroscopic Explorer.  He is a retired USAF officer, where he directed research and development projects for several national security programs.
