Classical goes carbon-friendly with Concerts of the Earth
Choir of the Earth is thrilled to announce an exciting and environmentally-friendly new endeavour, bringing live and interactive concerts from sensational professional artists to a global at-home audience.
The Coronavirus lockdowns, whilst tragic and damaging to the music industry, brought with them the realisation that it is possible to connect and share fulfilling, immersive and moving experiences without ever leaving your home. Combine this with a very real Climate Emergency, where time is running out. Change is needed now, and the music community must play its part. Concerts of the Earth, working alongside our sister organisation, Choir of the Earth, is committed to aggressively pursuing a carbon-friendly agenda, using innovative technology to minimise the carbon footprint of live music.
Concerts of the Earth will therefore broadcast these exciting performances via high quality livestreaming technology to ensure that wherever you live, and whatever is going on in your life, you have the chance to watch, hear and even interact with these amazing musicians at a convenient time and cost, and all with minimal impact on our precious environment. We believe it is important to give audiences worldwide the opportunity to experience the wonderful talents of the artists we have had the privilege to work with, and furthermore that we must support these performers at this challenging time by sharing their talents on a world stage.
We are also proud to champion the importance of social interaction by running a live text chat throughout the performance for attendees who wish to do use it. Of course, those who would rather focus fully on the performance can close the chat and savour an intimate concert in the comfort of their own home.
After the concert, the audience will have the opportunity to take part in a lively on-screen discussion with the performer, who will answer questions, both pre-submitted and from the live chat.
Tickets cost £10 each, available to purchase on the Concerts of the Earth website. The performers will sing live solely for the online audience - there will be no physical audience present. The concert recording will remain available to watch again whenever and as often as desired.
The initial online recitals will feature Bass-Baritone Ashley Riches in October, Mezzo-Soprano Helen Charlston in November, and jazz duo L'Estranges in the Night in December, with further concerts to be announced shortly.
