Join together with hundreds of neighbors, visitors, and singers for the world premiere of In the Name of the Earth, a large-scale choral work by Pulitzer Prize–winning composer John Luther Adams. In this commission for four choirs led by the incomparable Simon Halsey, nearly 800 experienced and amateur singers transform the names of North American rivers, lakes, mountains, and deserts into a communal meditation on Adams's holy trinity: the Earth, the Water, and the Holy Wind. Celebrate our planet and community through an enveloping sound world created by 360-degree singing.
