Are we able to listen beyond the chatter of human voices hearing the evolving messages uttered by our planet?
Culminating this 25th anniversary season will be a collaborative co-commission by celebrated composers Eric Banks and Robert Paterson that focuses on the global voice of our planet – its natural cycles and human interaction with those cycles. We extend the question, “What peril awaits should we choose not to listen?”
