A Capella Science Performance by Tim Blais
Tim Blais, the popular YouTuber, and creator of A Capella Science will be conducting live performances of some of his musical science lessons. Tim rewrites the lyrics to popular songs to create insightful and entertaining introductions to science topics. He then performs the songs using only his voice to create all the vocal parts. His creative approach and musical talent have garnered more than 20 million views on YouTube. Although Tim has a Master’s degree in high energy physics, his videos have addressed a wide range of topics, including biology, chemistry, math, robotics, and more.
Tim Blais will perform two of his a capella parodies in collaboration with members of the KAUST Chorus. Choristers are Alessio Picco, David Keyes, Elisa Garuglieri, Elizabeth Ryan, Emmalee Johnson, Emmanuel Alonso, Harold Mantilla, Laurie Nason, Mariyam Mahmud, Michelle Havlik, Monica Chan, Natalia Garmashova, Phumelele Ngcobo, Sara Durini, Sven Nyrenstedt, Siobhan Westbrook, Teruo Tada, and Wendy Keyes.
