Event description

Description

After its successful world premiere last fall, this environmental oratorio makes its return to the Cleveland stage, performed by Blue Streak Ensemble!

Voice of the Lake, an Oratorio for Vocal Soloists, Choirs and Instruments is a musical description of Lake Erie, the good and the bad, in the first quarter of the 21st century. The music portrays the constant motion of the waves splashing on the rocks, of walking on the beach, of the sun glinting on the water, of children playing in the water, and of the pleasure of a fisherman in his boat fishing. The Oratorio also depicts the environmental problems that the lake faces. After a canoe trip near the algae friendly river, the mezzo shows photos to her friend and sings of the lake where it is filled with algae. She also shows various innovative attempts to control and stop the algae. Another section of the Oratorio portrays a public hearing over whether to dump the toxic residue that has been dredged from the Cuyahoga River into the lake. The revised version of Voice of the Lake focuses on factual information in the libretto veering away from using poetic lines. The music is the same, but the words have changed. Plus there are new arias for the mezzo, and for tenor.

We hope this musical vista of nature will help raise awareness about the pollution of Lake Erie and its need for protection by dramatizing the story through music.

This performance will be video recorded for future broadcast.
