Forces + Fates: The Beauty and Volatility of Planet Earth

CANCELED: Chicago Sinfonietta

The environment’s impact is more acute than ever. Forces + Fates explores how the environment has influenced artists over centuries---and how will it continue to inspire in centuries to come. Explore Fingal’s Cave in the British Isles though Mendelssohn’s The Hebrides, the rainmaking rituals of the Amazonian Tupi-Guarani tribes during Clarice Assad’s Nhanderú and immerse yourself in Earth’s past, present and future through a momentous three-part commission. Then, brace yourself for the ultimate exploration of fate and destiny: a second half featuring Beethoven’s Symphony No. 5.
