THE ARCTIC: SOUNDS OF CRISIS is an experiential evening linking global warming, the transformation of our planet, the impacts this palpable change is having on the people of the North – and why you should care. Mike Sfraga, Director of the Global Risk and Resilience Program and the Polar Institute at The Wilson Center, weaves a compelling narrative on global warming and the Arctic with visuals and music by the Verona Quartet and pianist Tanya Bannister, followed by a panel discussion led by critically-acclaimed journalist Ali Velshi. A co-presentation by Concert Artists Guild, The Wilson Center and Roadmaps Festival.

To include music by: Janacek, J. S. Bach, Donnacha Dennehy, and Beethoven
