The William A. Calder Equinox Concert Series honors Professor William A. Calder's legacy as a professor, musician and citizen at Agnes Scott from 1947 to 1971. At the time of the Fall and Spring equinoxes (the September and March Open Houses), the gathering features a concert given by a visiting musical group or solo musician. Following the lecture or concert, guests are invited to stay for a planetarium show and (weather permitting) observations with Observatory telescopes, including the historic Beck Telescope. Planetarium shows typically include fun astronomy facts and a look at what is visible in the local sky that night.

This year's musical guests will be the Eurasia Trio. 

Eurasia Trio consists of Qiao Chen Solomon (violin), Dr. Martin Gueorguiev (cello), and Paolo André Gualdi (piano).  Hailing from China, Qiao Chen Solomon began playing violin at the age of 8 and later pursued the studies of viola, voice, piano, and conducting. She performs as soloist, conductor, chamber musician, and orchestra player throughout the United States, Asia, and Europe. Qiao currently serves as Associate Professor of Music, Director of Orchestral and Strings Studies of the Music Department at Agnes Scott College.

Dr. Gueorguiev is on the faculty of the William Pu Music Academy, the Atlanta Music Academy in Atlanta, GA, and he also serves as an Artist-Affiliate and teaches cello at Oxford College of Emory University. In the summer, he teaches at the Atlanta Festival Academy.
