Concert

Who Is Now Silent?

 

Hear our planet’s wild beauty and power - and be inspired to fight to help protect it. Pulitzer Prize-winning composer John Luther Adams, who spent his youth in the wilds of Alaska as an environmental activist, writes music deeply in tune with the natural world. Gregor Mayrhofer’s Insect Concerto, written to create awareness about a worldwide decline of insect populations, highlights a special urgency about biodiversity loss and its impact on our ecosystem.
