MUSICAL TRIBUTE TO SCIENTISTS
AND OTHER PEOPLE OF REASON
Musical Tribute To Scientists is a series of concerts which consist of performances of music by Edward Manukyan - a number of which are dedicated to scientists - and lectures and speeches by scientists and public intellectuals.
The purpose of these events is to promote wider appreciation for sciences through special concerts at concert halls, schools, college/university campuses, museums, and elsewhere, and to make due acknowledgment of distinguished living scientists, marking occasions of their birthday anniversaries, celebrations of important discoveries, etc.
