Rivers Empyrean

About

At a time when the environment is more threatened than ever with pollution and our life-giving waterways at risk, Fifth House Ensemble traces the life cycle of water from its metaphorical descent from the heavens as rain, to its long journey in streams and rivers informed by conservation experts and ecologists. Featuring a new commission by Canterbury alumnus Patrick O'Malley ('08), this program asks what it would mean to return to a sacred conception in which humans are a part of nature rather than being standing outside of its impact.
