During the early modern era, gratitude for the earth was regularly expressed through religious and secular celebrations focused on giving thanks for earth’s life-giving provisions. People deemed it important to be good stewards of the earth so that it would continue to be prosperous for future generations. The discipline of alchemy was widely practiced at the time, encouraging balance and stasis internally as well as with our relationship to the earth. Since the dawn of the industrial revolution, humanity’s technological advances have both propelled society forward and also often taken a dangerous toll on the planet. Although climate change is widely considered by scientists to be the most pressing threat to the life of our planet, environmental issues are often divisive and polarizing. Encouraged by the recent global climate strikes, our program will use music as a vehicle for inspiring productive dialogue about climate change.
