With:
Kim Robards Dance • Kim Robards, Artistic Director
Fairview High School Choirs • Janice Vlachos, Director
Fairview High School Orchestras • Mindy Anderson, Director
Fairview High School Dance • Rochelle Gallup, Director

The bedrock of any culture is its sacred scriptures. Christopher Tin has set ancient sacred texts of cultures and religious traditions from around the world in a beautiful and moving song cycle that earned him two Grammy awards in 2010. This concert is a fusion of orchestra, choir, soloists and dance, with settings of texts in Swahili, Japanese, French, English, Polish, Latin, and even Maori. One of the songs, Baba Yetu, is well-known as the theme music for the internationally popular video game Civilization IV, and is the first video game music to win a Grammy. This is contemporary music at its most exciting and relevant in a breathtaking collaboration with MSCO, Fairview High School Music and Kim Robards Dance.
