The Arctic: Sounds of Crisis


Merkin Concert Hall at Kaufman Music Center

An experiential evening linking global warming, the transformation of our planet, the impacts this palpable change is having on the people of the North – and why you should care.

The program, led by Mike Sfraga, Director of the Global Risk and Resilience Program and the Polar Institute at The Wilson Center, weaves a compelling narrative on global warming and the Arctic with visuals and music by the Verona Quartet and pianist Tanya Bannister. This will be followed by a panel discussion with leaders in the field led by critically-acclaimed journalist Ali Velshi.

A co-presentation with The Wilson Center and Roadmaps Festival.

Limited tickets will be available in early 2020
