4:00 PM Music: Haydn Voyages The Maritime Museum of San Diego and The Hausmann Quartet embark on their fourth season of "Haydn Voyages: Music at the Maritime," a unique mix of music and education for those looking for a new cultural and creative experience. The Hausmann Quartet's intimate performances transport audiences on unique musical voyages, flowing from classical to contemporary works in an idyllic setting, aboard the 1898 steam ferryboat Berkeley in downtown San Diego. Enjoy performances on the city's only floating concert hall and immerse yourself in sounds of a string quartet and the San Diego Bay.

Each unique performance explores the evolution of the string quartet through both the lens of classical composer Joseph Haydn and themes varying from differing world views, humor, to the human condition. Refreshments are available on Berkeley's upper deck bar starting at 3:30 PM. Performances include informative and entertaining commentary from musicologist Derek Katz.

5:00 PM Talk on Leonardo da Vinci In recognition of 2019 as 500 years since the death of Leonardo da Vinci, professor Kevin Petti will deliver a talk entitled Leonardo: Connecting Art and Anatomy. Known for iconic works such as The Last Supper and Mona Lisa, closely examining Leonardo's anatomical sketches in his private papers reveals a new dimension to his genius. Leonardo employed dissection techniques generations ahead of university anatomists, and discovered human structure and function unknown to physicians for centuries. This talk also explores how human dissection influenced the works of other Renaissance Masters such as Michelangelo and Raphael.

7:00 PM Stage: Kiss My Aztec When the Spanish set their sights on Mesoamerica and its riches, they will destroy anyone and anything that keeps them from conquering and claiming it all for themselves. But the Aztecs are like, "Hell, no!" This fresh, irreverent and outrageous satire could only spring forth from the insanely hilarious mind of John Leguizamo, last seen at the Playhouse in his acclaimed one-man show Latin History for Morons. Featuring a fusion of bolero, hip hop, merengue and rap, Kiss My Aztec! celebrates, elevates and commemorates Latinx culture in an uproarious new musical. Please note John Leguizamo will be behind-the-scenes this time — other fantastic actors will be performing!
