The Flint Crisis and Bach Cantata Come Together as Science Joins Music April 17

On Sunday, April 17, DePauw Choirs and Percussion Ensemble join hydro-ecologists and water activists to perform “WaterMusic: An Immersion Experience.” An Open House begins at 7PM, in the Great Hall of the Green Center for Performing Arts, with an art exhibit furnished by guest speakers and student environmental scientists, leading into the musical performance at 7:30PM, in Kresge Auditorium. Music from Bach cantata, the Renaissance, and Reggae, Ugandan and Caribbean folk songs will be featured. Scientists will also be sharing with attendees the many ways that citizens can care for rivers, lakes, and oceans and guarantee that we all have clean drinking water. There will be a post-performance reception for questions and presentations on the Flint water crisis, and efforts to supply drinking water to Ugandan children. General admission tickets are $3. Seniors, youth and students are free.
