Aurea open’s their season with a free performance at Slater Mill for the Pawtucket Arts Festival, Sunday September 10th at 2:00pm. A signature Aurea program, Of Nature Composed explores the intersection of nature, science, the arts and humanities, and the sanctity of our environment. Highly praised for its transcendent quality, Of Nature Composed premiered in 2016 to celebrate the centennial of the Pulitzer Prize; the program features a unique array of American composers and writers, including the words and music of 2014 Pulitzer Prize winner, John Luther Adams; composers, Charles Griffes, John Cage, Lou Harrison, and Charles Ives; with words of the contemporary Pulitzer Prize winning poets, Galway Kinnell, Mary Oliver; and Ted Kooser; and naturalist, Henry David Thoreau.
Created with support from the Rhode Island Council for the Humanities in celebration of the 2016 Centennial of the Pulitzer Prize.
