Emergent Universe Oratorio

 
The Emergent Universe Oratorio will be performed: June 30, 2017 at 7:30pm
 
At the: Milton and Tamar Maltz Performing Arts Center
at The Temple—Tifereth Israel
1855 Ansel Rd, Cleveland, Ohio  
 
Sam Guarnaccia’s Emergent Universe Oratorio will be performed by the Cleveland Chamber Choir and the BlueWater Chamber Orchestra under the baton of Scott MacPherson.
 
Inspired by Brian Swimme’s and Mary Evelyn Tucker’s epic, Emmy Award winning film, Journey of the Universe (2011), the Oratorio weaves together chorus, vocal soloists, and orchestra with an original libretto that tells the story of our planet’s 13.8 billion year evolution, from the “big bang” to the present day. At its heart the Oratorio pays homage to paleontologist and philosopher Pierre Teilhard de Chardin’s belief that the fate of the Earth depends upon the evolution of a “global human consciousness” that recognizes the need to protect and nurture our planet.
