Listen to the Earth Project
Choral Artists initiated the Listen to the Earth Project in honor of the 50th anniversary of Earth Day, April 22, 2020. he centerpiece of the project is the Choral Artists concert on Sunday, April 19 at which we will premiere James Grant’s work Listen to the Earth. The project as a whole seeks to highlight
the local organizations that work to understand and conserve our rich natural surroundings here on the Gulf of Mexico.
In addition, Choral Artists and our partners offer a cornucopia of events to help us celebrate, conserve and become better stewards of our planet throughout April. The Listen to the Earth Project has been recognized by the Earth Day organization and the Smithsonian Institution as part of their Earth Optimism Summit. <link here for partner page>
