Looking back to our ancestral roots, we once worshiped trees, the earth, and nature. Over time, we lost our connection with the very thing that granted us life. Today, forests and jungles are ravaged just to make room for more concrete, more steel, and more buildings. How do we create a future where both people and nature can both thrive? Here and Now is a call to realize that what we have is not only amazing but fading away.
The show starts with tribal drums and sacred dance to show respect to the earth and trees of the forest. Conflict arises as the beloved land is stripped away and the urban sprawl and cities take over. Finally, we realize the way ahead involves uniting the two worlds together to create a sustainable future for both man and mother nature in the ‘Here and Now’.
Note: This show includes an arrangement of “Here and Now” by Luther Vandross. Additional licensing and associated fees will apply but we’ll handle acquiring the licensing for you. Contact us with any questions.
“Here and Now” was originally commissioned for Perkiomen Valley HS (Collegeville, PA) for the winter of 2019 for their Mid Atlantic Percussion Society and WGI season.
