Official Description

ANNUAL GREEN CONCERT Boston Landmarks Orchestra | Christopher Wilkins, conductor In partnership with the New England Aquarium Modest Mussorgsky Night on Bald Mountain Ralph Vaughan Williams Sinfonia antartica (Symphony No. 7) Samuel Barber Adagio for Strings Antonín Dvořák Symphony No. 7 in D minor, Op. 70.

Boston Landmarks Orchestra and the New England Aquarium present a moving and thought-provoking orchestral program paired with videos of the environmental impacts of climate change. Stunningly evocative music accompanies dramatic landscapes captured in film and photography. David Arnold’s photographic essay on climate change astounds with its beauty and shocks with its implications. The music of Vaughan Williams’s Sinfonia antartica—first conceived as a film score—accompanies a new film shot entirely in Antarctica. Reverence for nature and a sense of foreboding reverberate in Dvořák’s masterpiece, his seventh symphony.

Rain Date: Thursday, August 15, 2019. If it rains on August 15 as well, the concert will be held at First Church in Cambridge 11 Garden St, Cambridge, MA 02138.
