Boston Landmarks Orchestra, in partnership with the New England Aquarium, will present a thought-provoking orchestral program paired with videos of the environmental impacts of climate change.

The annual Green Concert is scheduled for Wednesday, August 14, starting at 7 p.m at the DCR Memorial Hatch Shell on the Esplanade in Boston.

“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.”

The rain date is Thursday, August 15, and if it rains August 15 as well, the concert will be held at First Church, 11 Garden St., Cambridge.
