    Receptions & Special Events

    Rabbit Rabbit Radio will present a newly created song cycle inspired by the ocean and the changes it is undergoing due to climate change, overfishing, and pollution.

    A free diver transcends her terrestrial ties and, through song, brings you on a tour of our oceans. Carried by the currents that connect us all, she encounters billions of bioluminescent creatures, the endlessly inventive structures of coral reefs on their annual night of spawning, fields of human detritus, and abandoned nets still fishing for no one. What she finds is at once awe-inspiring and devastating.

    Crafted by veterans of rock, classical, and pop music, and using the most powerful aspects of each, Lost City is a set of songs that navigates a visceral tour through the worlds waterways. Each song frames an aspect of our evolving understanding of the ocean and our relationship to it. Created with the cooperation of the Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, it is an abstract odyssey that reminds us of both the emotional and ecological significance the sea.

    Conceived of by George Ban-Weiss, and composed by Carla Kihlstedt, Matthias Bossi, and Jeremy Flower. These four are joined in performance by Michael Abraham, Kristin Slipp, and Ariel Parkington.
