Terra Nostra is a major new work for soloists, choir, and orchestra by Stacy Garrop, one of the rising composers of our time. This engaging music focuses on the relationship between our planet and humankind. Cast in three sections—Part I: Creation of the World; Part II: The Rise of Humanity; and Part III: Searching for Balance—Terra Nostra explores creation myths from different cultures and examines how we can increase awareness of our planet’s plight to find a balance for living within the Earth’s resources. Composer Stacy Garrop will join Stephen Alltop in conversation following the performance.
