Scott MacPherson and the Cleveland Chamber Choir combine forces with BlueWater in its first program of major choral works.

THE CAPTIVATING CELLO

Mark Kosower

BlueWater’s opening concert is highlighted by special guest soloist Mark Kosower, Principal Cellist of The Cleveland Orchestra. His “eloquent” and “red-blooded” playing will captivate and amaze in the virtuosic Second Concerto of Haydn and the seldom heard grand duet for violin and cello by Saint-Saens. Guest Conductor Octavio Mas-Arocas returns to Cleveland to lead the orchestra in one of Beethoven’s most popular symphonies.

Milton and Tamar Maltz Performing Arts Center at The Temple

Inspired by Brian Swimme’s and Mary Evelyn Tucker’s epic, Emmy Award winning film, Journey of the Universe (2011), the Oratorio weaves together chorus, vocal soloists, and orchestra with an original libretto that tells the story of our planet’s 13.8 billion year evolution, from the “big bang” to the present day. At its heart the Oratorio pays homage to paleontologist and philosopher Pierre Teilhard de Chardin’s belief that the fate of the Earth depends upon the evolution of a “global human consciousness” that recognizes the need to protect and nurture our planet. BlueWater is excited to be part of this evocative world premiere.
