Discover Arts in the Park in partnership with Terra Nostra are happy to announce the upcoming free outdoor family-friendly community event Symphony for Climate Change at the upper field of the Daybreak Star Center in Discovery Park.
We invite the community to enjoy Arts in the Park and to join a global effort to address climate change. Our purpose: to engage, educate, inspire, and empower our community towards policy change to protect our local environs and our planet.
The event will feature the screening of "Terra Nostra" (“Our Earth”), an acclaimed multimedia symphonic creation featuring music, film and poetry about climate change by Seattle composer and conductor Christophe Chagnard (poem read live by acclaimed Classical KING FM host Lisa Bergman and with live accompaniment by violinist Jo Nardolillo), “EarthQuake” by the Khambatta Dance Company, "Inhale/Exhale" animation by Artist Rachel Lodge, and a resource fair and family activities centered on the timely and important subject of climate change with local artists, scientists and environmental groups.
Our event is partially funded or sponsored by Seattle Neighborhood Matching Fund Grant, 4Culture, Magnolia Rotary Club, Classical KING FM and Seattle Design Festival (happening citywide August 16-25).
