The Symphonic Wind Ensemble’s May program features as its centerpiece the Midwest premiere of Adam Schoenberg’s Losing Earth, dedicated to percussionist and Northwestern alumnus Jacob Nissly and premiered by the San Francisco Symphony in October 2019. Inspired by the New York Times article “Losing Earth: The Decade We Almost Stopped Climate Change,” the work pays homage to Earth’s incredible history and reflects on what we must do to preserve our planet.
