Illuminati Vocal Arts Ensemble
A Passion for the Planet is a 55-minute work for chorus, orchestra, soprano and baritone soloists. The first section celebrates the wonders and blessings of our planet. The second explores recent environmental destruction and devastation. The final section builds on the words of the naturalist David Orr: “Hope is a verb with its sleeves rolled up.” The texts for A Passion for the Planet are drawn from many sources—some sacred, some secular. Accompanying the large choir will be a 12-person orchestra: flute, oboe, clarinet, horns, trombone, strings, and percussion.
