Icarus takes flight!

We celebrated the premiere of our newest portfolio work, Icarus in Flight,  on June 9th at a packed performance at the Noe Valley Ministry in San Francisco.  This new composition, by composer Richard Festinger in collaboration with The ClimateMusic Project, tracks three human drivers of climate change from 1880 to 2080.  The award-winning Telegraph Quartet   performed the work to a standing ovation.  

Following the performance, the audience engaged with a panel  that included Dr. William Collins, Dr. Chris Luebkeman, composer Richard Festinger, Stephan Crawford, and violinist Eric Chin

The evening also included an opportunity for the audience to interact with our solutions partners, including The Global Footprint Network, Re-Volv, Interfaith Power and Light, and CoolEffect, all of which offer ways in which the public can actively engage in positive action at home and in our communities.  

Special thanks to our collaborators on the content for the evening, Arup and Kinetech Arts, as well as to our sponsors, The Zellerbach Family Foundation, Macroclimate, and The University of San Francisco's Graduate Program in Energy Systems Management
