Symphony for Our World combines National Geographic’s stunning visuals with an original score by Emmy and BAFTA-nominated Bleeding Fingers Music, performed by live symphony orchestra and choir. From the mysterious depths of the ocean to the vast sky above, this new concert experience takes audiences on a journey through the wonders our beloved little blue dot: Earth. This breath-taking adventure explores a variety of wondrously wild eco-systems, each accompanied by its own orchestral movement – moving from sea to coastline, advancing further inland, before ascending through mountains, and finally soaring into the sky. Symphony for Our World is a powerful, and timely, tribute to the beauty and wonders of our world.
JANE in Concert pairs two icons: the world’s leading primatologist, Jane Goodall, and composer Philip Glass. JANE, Brett Morgen’s award-winning documentary, draws from more than 100 hours of never-before-seen footage that has been tucked away in the National Geographic archives for over 50 years, to tell Goodall’s remarkable story. Her chimpanzee research challenged the male-dominated scientific consensus of her time and revolutionized our understanding of the natural world. Philip Glass’ rich, extraordinary score, performed live in concert by symphony orchestra, is the powerful soundtrack that illustrates the life and accomplishments of the trailblazing and universally admired conservationist.
National Geographic Film Concerts’ Symphony for Our World and JANE in Concert will take to stages around the world from summer 2021.
