Wednesday, April 21, 2021, 5 – 6:20pm EDT
Join the National Museum of Natural History and Hybrid Vigor Music in celebration of Earth Day 2021 with A Passion for the Planet: Art and Science in Concert.
At the convergence of art and science is a powerful message about the climate crisis. Scott Wing, Research Geologist and Curator of Paleobotany at NMNH, moderates a discussion between A Passion for the Planet composer Geoffrey Hudson, National Endowment for the Arts Chief of Staff Ra Joy, and climate scientist and author Michael E. Mann, about the intersection of art, storytelling and science. Following the conversation, stick around for a special director’s cut style performance of A Passion for the Planet with Hudson and Mann, whose famous “Hockey Stick” graph depicting the rapid rise in temperature change in the 20th century is set to music in Hudson’s oratorio. As the performance unfolds, Hudson and Mann will share commentary and answer questions live via chat.
