Have you ever heard all 50 United States recited in alphabetical order within 20 seconds? How about a recitation of all 118 chemical elements while being accompanied by a Brazilian cuíca drum? Come and hear a variety of piano favorites; from Liszt to Chopin, Billy Joel, and ragtime classics. Plus, a piece that is intended to be played 840 times in a row, and requires a full day to perform! Enjoy the sounds of multiple instruments including organ, piccolo, and slide whistle. Be prepared to experience some magic, along with classic yo-yo tricks, chemistry, and the timeless crackle of an antique Edison cylinder phonograph.
