Description

NOTE: admission to the American Museum of Natural History is required for the day of the concert. An RSVP on Eventbrite does not guarantee entrance to the event - arrive early to the Hall of Ocean Life to secure your spot!

TCS is thrilled to present the Pulitzer and GRAMMY award-winning piece Become Ocean by American composer John Luther Adams in the Milstein Family Hall of Ocean Life at the American Museum of Natural History. Commissioned by the Seattle Symphony and premiered in 2013, this single movement work was inspired by the oceans of Alaska and the Pacific Northwest.

From a note in the score: "Life on this earth first emerged from the sea. As the polar ice melts and sea level rises, we humans find ourselves facing the prospect that once again we may quite literally become ocean."

Scientists from the museum will present complementary educational dialogue with our conductors and composers.

In conjunction with this special performance, TCS will perform the world premiere of TCS composer Michael Boyman's piece, The Howling Wilderness.

Conducted by Matthew Aubin and Mark Seto

TCS's twelfth season SEA CHANGE features music inspired by the natural world. Spanning centuries and continents, this season showcases compelling works with a focus on nature and environmental stewardship.
