Join us for a performance of Rivers Empyrean, by Fifth House Ensemble

At a time when the environment is more threatened than ever by pollution and our life-giving waterways are at risk, Fifth House Ensemble traces water’s life cycle from its metaphorical descent from the heavens as rain, to its long journey into flowing rivers and streams. Featuring new commissions by Patrick O’Malley and Shawn Okpebholo, commissions informed by First Peoples, conservation experts and ecological data, Rivers Empyrean asks what it would mean to return to a sacred conception in which humans are a part of nature rather than beings standing outside of its impact. 

The Rivers Empyrean performance will take place at 4:30pm directly following the Chicago Wilderness Congress 2020 conference. Tickets for the performance are available for separate purchase, you do not need to attend Congress 2020 in order to attend the Rivers Empyrean performance. For those planning on attending Congress 2020, the performance will be included as part of the conference ticket price. To learn more about Congress 2020 click here.
