Newhart Family Theatre

About the Event:

Pope Francis’ stirring encyclical on the environment, “Laudato Si”, calls us to action on behalf of creation. Our response combats the degradation of our earth by sharing reverence and awe through these performances. The Dance program and Chamber Choir will unite to present composer Paul Winter’s Missa Gaia/Earth Mass as a celebration of earth’s great beauty and the mystery of its life-giving force. This concert will feature staging by guest artist Raul Casasola from the Joffrey Ballet, as well as Doris Humphrey’s pioneering masterpiece Water Study.
