All of the music for “In Nature’s Realm” is inspired or influenced by nature. Throughout history artists have depicted nature from many perspectives and through many mediums. In music, the depiction of nature has become more immersive, it is like the difference between looking at a painting and using virtual reality equipment. Each of these pieces portrays a different facet of our interaction with nature, allowing us to explore through the mind of the composer.
The Sound Ensemble is a flexible and diverse group of professional musicians governed by its members. We believe in the power of music to create community, entertain and transform lives. In order to reach as many people as possible we bring the music we love to society’s gathering places, providing potent musical experiences for our community through inspired performance. To further our goal of reaching untouched audiences our ticket prices are kept low through the support of our donors and sponsors. We hope that no one will be denied the opportunity to experience live music due to the expense.
