"Our house is on fire"

"Our house is on fire. I'm here to say our house is on fire." -Greta Thunberg
My new piece "Requiem for our Earth" for female choir and electronics contains parts of Gretas speech in Davos January 2018, snippets from different speeches by Pope Francis as well as bleaching coral. It contains whistling and lights. It contains video projection by Marek Pluciennik. World premiere next week 7th of November! And this concert also includes an other world premiere by composer Perttu Haapanen. The whole concert is sung by the wonderful Akademiska Damkören Lyran and conducted by the fantastic Jutta Seppinen. Come and see for your self next week! Welcome!
