World House Choir Performance: OUR PLANET – OUR LIVES

September 12, 2019 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm EDT

Free

OUR PLANET – OUR LIVES: Sept. Concerts Feature Performance of Missa Gaia, Guest Artists from the Dayton Contemporary Dance Company and Two Newly Commissioned Choral Works

This year we are honored to be part of the Levitt Pavilion lineup. The concert, Our Planet—Our Lives, coincides with the UN’s Climate Justice for Peace Day (September 21). The Levitt asked the World House Choir to sing, in part, because they wanted a local choral arts organization to recognize and join in Peace Dayton’s on going work. The choir had already decided to sing the Missa Gaia: A Mass in Celebration of Mother Earth, and when we realized that the UN was joining their International Day of Peace with Climate Justice, we knew the stars were aligned.

Paul Winter’s Missa Gaia is a 40-minute contemporary work that is derived from a traditional religious form meant to move listeners to reflect on the interconnectedness and sanctity of all life on earth. It weaves the recorded calls of wolf, whale, and harp seal together with choral voices, soloists and a small ensemble of instrumentalists. Textured throughout in this lyrical environmental liturgy are rhythms from Africa, Brazil and the American gospel tradition. The voices of the animals are more than mere sound as they inspire the meaning and shape the form of each musical movement

In addition to our performance of Missa Gaia, the World House Choir has commissioned two African American composers, Ayanna Woods and Norman Whiteside, to write short original works for us that address climate justice. Not only that, we will be joined by invited guests from the Dayton Contemporary Dance Company.  for several of the movements of the Missa Gaia.

Admission is free, donations are welcome.
