Noon Hour Concert: Earth Voices

This earth-themed concert features Earth Voices, a performance piece by Carol Ann Weaver for readers, soundscape, and visuals, with texts by 24 Mennonite writers from North and South America, Middle East, and Africa.  The soundscape is based on Carol's compositions, on-site field recordings, and visuals, which frame and synergize with the spoken word.  This piece seeks to find voices which can lead us into a deeper knowledge of the earth and our relationship to it.
