Emergent Universe Oratorio
Fri Jun 30th 7:30pm - 9:00pm
Maltz Performing Arts Center
1855 Ansel Rd, Cleveland

Emergent UniverseCleveland's BlueWater Chamber Orchestra and the Cleveland Chamber Choir will perform the Emergent Universe Oratorio by composer Sam Guarnaccia, under the baton of conductor Scott MacPherson.

The Emergent Universe Oratorio tells the great scientific story of the Universe's 13.8 billion-year journey from the Big Bang to the emergence of human consciousness as an evolutionary force. Told in a series of alternating intensively scored recitatives with major lyrical choral movements, the libretto is set in intimate, dynamic relationship to the music, evoking a deep resonance and response to the new cosmologies-the stories and ways of seeing that shape our behavior and determine our future --- offering a unique way through music and poetic narrative, to raise consciousness of humanity's responsibility to protect and preserve our planet.
