Event Details

Sold out- Join the GRPM for Concerts Under the Stars in the Chaffee Planetarium. Visitors can sit back and experience the wonder of the cosmos and the wonder of music!

This concert will take place on March 1 and will feature Jes Kramer, replacing the traditional singer-songwriter’s acoustic guitar with a stack of battery powered keyboards and a loop pedal. The concert begins at 7:30 p.m., with doors opening at 6:30 p.m. Refreshments, beer and other beverages will be available for purchase.

Kramer’s songs build up in front of your eyes, creating the right cushion to deliver deeply personal stories with just enough hope.

Visuals for this concert are produced by Meghan Moe Beitiks. Meghan has designed lights for the California Academy of Sciences, the Asian Art Museum, SF Sketchfest, and Atom-R. She is an artist working with associations and disassociations of culture/nature/structure, analyzing perceptions of ecology through the lenses of site, history, and emotions in order to produce work that interrogates relationships with the non-human. She was a Fulbright Student Fellow in Scenic Design to Latvia and a recipient of the Edes Foundation Prize for Emerging Artists. She received her BA in Theater Arts from the University of California at Santa Cruz and her MFA in Performance Art from the School of the Art Institute of Chicago. She is currently a Visiting Assistant Professor at Grand Valley State University.

Concerts Under the Stars are sponsored by Rebel Reclaimed and WYCE 88.1 FM Radio.
