Voyages: Chapter 2
At the intersection of art and sciences lies Voyages, an original immersive event series at the National Aquarium that inspires a connection to nature and celebrates all things Baltimore. At Voyages: Chapter 2, voyagers will kick off their journey with local vendors serving up some of the best of the Baltimore food scene before embarking on an audio-focused tour of National Aquarium exhibits. Voyagers will have the opportunity to choose their own musical adventure, exploring the live performance of a composition by featured artists Jessica Keyes and Patrick McMinn that includes acoustic musicians, projected visuals and electronic music played through individual headphones. This culminative experience is inspired by Jessica and Patrick's research exploring the biodiversity of the Chesapeake Bay.
Following this immersive journey, voyagers will conclude the evening with an after-party featuring performances from local emcee Eze Jackson, accompanied by DJ Trillnatured.
