Michigan Philharmonic Performs a 'Watershed' Earth Day Celebration Today

Adventures-on-Earth-a-Watershed-Earth-Day-Celebration-321-20010101

The Michigan Philharmonic will perform a concert that unites nature & music at 2pm today, April 21, 2013 at the First United Methodist Church of Plymouth. Sharing the stage for a side by side performance of An Outdoor Overture by Aaron Copeland, will be the spirited exuberance of the Michigan Philharmonic Youth Orchestra.

This spring event will feature nature-themed pieces by Ottorino Respighi and Antonin Dvorák along with the soaring majesty of "Adventures on Earth" by John Williams; the inspirational symphonic finale to the Academy Award winning film that made us all look at our world a little differently, E.T. The Extra-Terrestrial.

To provide our Earth Day event with some local emphasis, guest composer and University of Michigan Associate Professor, Evan Chambers will be in attendance as the orchestra performs his evocative work, Watershed. This piece helps to shed (pun intended) light on the preservation and resilience of Southeastern Michigan's Huron River.

Michigan Philharmonic ticket holders will also have the chance to travel in style to future concerts. Beginning with this April 21 performance, and continuing through our 2013/14 season, every person who purchases a Michigan Phil concert ticket will be entered in a drawing to win a 2-Year Lease on a 2014 AWD Cadillac ATS Sedan - the North American Car of the Year - Courtesy of Don Massey Cadillac.

The concert begins at 2pm with an optional pre-concert talk at 1:15pm. Tickets are $30. Senior and Student discount tickets are available and all kids are FREE with a paying adult. To purchase tickets or sponsor this event, call (734) 451-2112 or visit www.michiganphil.org.
