Judith Glixon, a former Asheville resident and principal cellist with the Asheville Symphony and the Brevard Chamber Orchestra, returns to NC to present a one-hour solo cello concert about the urgency of climate change. The music of J. S. Bach (Unaccompanied Suites #2 & 3), Benjamin Britten (final movement of Suite for Cello, Op.72), Maurice Ravel and a recent composition by Daniel Crawford will take listeners through an abridged history of the human race (with an emphasis on Western civilization) from its beginning until today. Ticket sales for the concert will support the work of Interfaith Creation Care of the Triangle, North Carolina Interfaith Power and Light and the Creation Care Alliance. Interfaith Creation Care of the Triangle works within and across communities of faith to urgently fulfill our sacred duty to love and protect Creation, address our changing climate and ensure justice for all life. NC Interfaith Power & Light, a program of the North Carolina Council of Churches, offers a hope-filled response to the issues of climate change. The Creation Care Alliance focuses on bringing practical and hopeful solutions to our congregations and broader secular communities by engaging hearts and minds through inspiration, education, service, and advocacy.
