Free, with Boston Landmarks Orchestra
Annual Green Concert
Wednesday, August 14, 2019
Boston Landmarks Orchestra and the New England Aquarium will present a moving and thought-provoking orchestral program paired with videos of the environmental impacts of climate change on Wednesday, August 14, from 7 p.m. to 9 p.m. at the DCR Hatch Memorial Shell on the Charles River Esplanade.
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.
