Liepzig: World in Miniature - Enlightenment philosopher Gotthold Ephraim Lessing said, "I'm coming to Leipzig, to the place where one can see the whole world in miniature."

 7 AM - 11 AM
Sunday Baroque
The study of acoustics goes back many centuries. Humans have long been curious about the sounds around us how they're created, how they travel, and what makes some of them sound pleasant while others sound like noise. Even Baroque era composers played around with acoustics, such as echoes, and Sunday Baroque will highlight some of their efforts.
