The Ontario Science Centre is transformed by ScienceROCKS into a musical playground for young professionals, where the 19+ crowd can take in live performances, engage in thought-provoking presentations, explore the new exhibition “The Science of Rock ‘N’ Roll” and catch the film Rolling Stones at the Max on the big screen.

From 7 p.m. to midnight on July 24, August 21, and September 18, the Ontario Science Centre invites adult visitors to experience different theme nights, and all are accompanied by great food, cocktails and rock-it science!

Advance tickets are now available for $15 and $18 at the door. Tickets include: admission to event and IMAX film, live performances, and activities.  All ScienceROCKS! Events are licensed, with food and drink available for purchase onsite.

 

 

ScienceROCKS at the Ontario Science Centre:

If you are up to hands-on interactive zones and objects from music history visit “The Science of Rock ’N’ Roll” where art and science in music converge. Learn how advances in science and technology have revolutionized music, starting from the way we make, listen, and experience and share music.

By walking through the exhibition you will experience the history and evolution of rock from the 1950s to the present day with all sorts of memorabilia and early instruments. You will also learn how we perceive sounds and how they are produced. It is explained how our brains are affected by rock music and you can discover the differences between mono vs. other stereo and create your own riff on a ‘reactable,’ an interactive music-making table.

Why not entering a recording booth and showing your Rock `N` Roll expertise playing an electric guitar?

And it’s not just about the musicians! All the numerous careers in the music industry both on and off stage are also highlighted.  A great feature at the end of the exhibition is a Concert Experience in a virtual live concert setting you can re-live.

The Science of Rock ‘N’ Roll runs until October 26, 2014.

MAISON AFTER WORK SCHMOOZE – We started the weekend off with a kick start.

On Friday, July 11th, the famous After Work Schmooze returned to one of Toronto´s greatest rooftop patios in Entertainment District hosted by CityEvents and Shanny in the City.

The After Work Schmooze was presented by Remy Martin and takes place every Friday on the patio. And the best was the location: The event occurred at Mercer´s rooftop terrace, which provides an amazing view on Toronto´s skyline. If that is not a suitable way to start the weekend on a great summer day!  

The event was co-hosted by CityEvents Toronto so many people from their network learned about the event via Social Media. Thus, the location filled up quickly and the terrace matched perfectly – it was crowded but not packed. The night was accompanied by happy hour drinks and a complimentary BBQ.

 

So if you were not there, just imagine the sunshine in your face, sitting on a cozy sofa, talking to your colleague while having a good wine and a snack from the tasty BBQ! Being surrounded by other people relaxing and listening to good music. Let´s hear from Manon and Annie who are currently at CityEvents how they liked the event Manon: “It was the first time that I went to Maison Mercer and I really enjoyed it, it’s a fancy venue where it’s nice to relax after work!” Annie: “The atmosphere of the venue was great and it is a good opportunity to meet new people and have interesting conversations!

Some other guests told me they just heard about the event from friends and that they will definitely come again as the relaxed atmosphere was a perfect start for a Friday night!
So now you basically know what you missed at Schmooze. But no worries, your next chance is Friday, July 25th– so don´t miss that one!
