Rivers Empyrean Fifth House Ensemble Outdoor Concert
Sunday, September 19th 2 P.M. at Brushwood Center
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. Join us for an outdoor concert at Brushwood Center, in conjunction with the opening of our new exhibition of youth voices, Our Future: Youth Perspectives on the Environment. Featuring a new commission by Fresh Inc Festival alumnus Patrick O’Malley driven by ecological data from Friends of the Chicago River, a new commission by Shawn Okpebholo that celebrates water as a precious resource by transforming it into a musical instrument alongside music inspired by First Peoples, this program asks what it would mean to return to a sacred conception in which humans are a part of nature rather than beings standing outside of its impact.
