Join us for an evening with chamber music ensemble Friction Quartet as they explore the global climate crisis through sound. Friction’s most recent album, Rising, explores the question, “How long will Earth be habitable for our kids?” A love letter to our fragile planet, Rising refers to the increasing sea levels and temperatures that threaten to consume our human settlements and the wilderness around us. It is also a rallying cry to mobilize our community against this catastrophe.

This concert is presented in conjunction with Climate Fast Forward, the Academy's conference on climate change action in Wisconsin.

Collaborating to present Friction Quartet in concert are artist Bruce Crownover of the Last Glacier Collective and his wife Samantha Crownover, executive director of the Bach Dancing & Dynamite Society. This event is also being made possible by friends of the Crownovers and by Dane Arts.
