Matthew Aucoin and Peter Sellars: Music for New Bodies

Saturday, Apr. 20 | 8:00 PM
Brockman Hall for Opera, Shepherd School of Music

Music for New Bodies is inspired by the visionary poetry of Jorie Graham, addressing some of the most urgent questions of our time. A 360-degree portrait of the moment we are living in, a piece that brings together questions of environmental responsibility, scientific progress and the ethics of humanity’s questionable quest to surpass the human.

Post-concert conversation with Matthew Aucoin, Peter Sellars and Joseph Campana, poet and director of the Center for Environmental Studies at Rice, moderated by Artistic Director Sarah Rothenberg
