John Luther Adams: In the Name of the Earth (World premiere)

Join together with thousands of neighbors, visitors, and singers in the northernmost part of Central Park for the world premiere of In the Name of the Earth, a large-scale choral work by Pulitzer Prize–winning composer John Luther Adams. In this commission for four choirs led by the incomparable Simon Halsey, nearly 800 experienced and amateur singers transform the names of North American rivers, lakes, mountains, and deserts into a communal meditation on Adams's holy trinity: the Earth, the Water, and the Holy Wind. Experience geography in sight and sound as you move around the beautiful water of the Harlem Meer and through an enveloping sound world created by 360-degree singing.

Rain location: The Cathedral of St. John the Divine

Singers: you're invited to participate in the world premiere! Find out how at InTheNameOfTheEarth.org. Registration begins on April 2.

Co-presented with Lincoln Center Out of Doors. Commissioned by Lincoln Center for the Performing Arts
