Hundreds of Virginia Tech musicians and singers recently gathered to celebrate the planet through music and images.
Dwight Bigler, the university’s director of choirs, conducted the premiere of “Mosaic for Earth,” his own composition, on April 3. The dazzling performance, captured in this video, took place in the Moss Arts Center.
The performance was highly collaborative, featuring a mosaic of musicians performing against a backdrop of evocative artwork and beautiful nature imagery. Bigler hopes the piece will continue to resonate with audiences and inspire action to protect the planet.
“The ultimate goal of this piece is to connect to the emotions of individuals, engage communities, and remind everyone to be better stewards of our world,” said Bigler. “My hope is this piece will encourage people to act.”
Hosted by the Virginia Tech School of Performing Arts, the choral and orchestral show was performed by members of the Virginia Tech Philharmonic, Virginia Tech Choirs, the Blacksburg Master Chorale, and the Blacksburg Children’s Chorale.
