Through music, wake up to the joys of nature, as Alice Walker advised in The Color Purple. Music brings us back to our roots, opening our souls to Nature. Ever since ink found quills, composers have sought to capture aspects of countryside and cosmos. Maurice Ravel pays homage to fountains, cascades, and brooks. Terry Riley unravels the mysteries of interplanetary travel in “Sun Rings” as performed by the Kronos Quartet with images from NASA. Renaissance composer Thomas Morley portrays a heart ablaze with flames of passion. Come romp through the countryside with Beethoven and sing and dance to Meredith Monk’s “On Behalf of Nature.”


Losing ourselves while contemplating the four elements—earth, wind, sea, and fire — we will rediscover ourselves in music and renew our connection to the cycles and mysteries of life.
