Join us for One Cello One Planet, a concert series that raises awareness for creation care action. All proceeds go to support the work of the Creation Care Alliance. Judith Glixon, a former Asheville resident and principle cellist with the Asheville Symphony and the Brevard Chamber Orchestra, returns to WNC to present a one-hour solo-cello concert about the urgency of climate change. The music of J. S. Bach (Unaccompanied Suites #1 & 3), Benjamin Britten (final movement of Suite for Cello, Op.72), Ravel and a recent composition by Daniel Crawford will take listeners through an abridged history of the human race (with an emphasis on Western civilization) from its beginning until today. Ticket sales for the concert will support the work that the Creation Care Alliance does to bring practical and hopeful solutions to our congregations and broader secular communities by engaging hearts and minds through inspiration, education, service, and advocacy. The Creation Care Alliance is a program of MountainTrue, WNC's champion for clean waters, resilient forests, and healthy communities.
