The Big Blue Marble: Music, Nature and the Environment
In May, Choral Arts Northwest presents an inspired choral exploration of nature and the environment, featuring poems by Mary Oliver, celebrated muse of earth, sea, and sky. Readings of Oliver’s poems pair with musical works including Stanford’s The Bluebird, Jake Runestad’s The Peace of Wild Things, Erika Lloyd’s pop-inspired Cells, Planets, and two world premieres on nature themes by John David Earnest, and by Composer-in-Residence Rick Asher. Filled with choral gems new and old, Big Blue offers festive choral colors to match the splendor of our wondrous Earth.
Choral Arts NW partners with the National Forest Foundation (www.nationalforests.org) and will plant one tree for every ticket sold for The Big Blue Marble. Help Choral Arts NW celebrate and renew the environment through a weekend of stunning music!
