The Crossroads Project
Thursday, Feb. 13 at 7:30 pm
Responding to one of society’s greatest challenges, the Crossroads Project weaves together a chorus of artistic and scientific voices to examine the Earth’s changing climate. At the core of the project is a multimedia concert featuring the Fry Street Quartet performing a newly commissioned work by Laura Kaminsky, as well as works by Haydn and Janáček, interwoven with live commentary by physicist Dr. Robert Davies to explore mankind’s impact on the climate and how society might respond.
The Crossroads performance combines compelling research with vivid imagery to examine humanity’s predicament, and then unleashes powerful music in an effort to take the audience on a journey from intellectual understanding to visceral experience and finally to personal resolve.
