Tonight, the Con Brio Chamber Series premieres “Climate Soundscapes – Music on the Science of Climate Change.” This unique program is the result of a partnership with the Juneau Composers Consortium and the University of Alaska, and based on science from the International Arctic Research Center. “Climate Soundscapes” will feature seven original compositions that were guided by the work of scientists specializing atmospheric research, glaciology, species migration and change, oceanography, and ocean warming.

Today on Juneau Afternoon, we’ll hear more about this weekend’s concerts and how the musicians and scientists hope they will help to bridge divides and connect communities to provoke discussion and action on climate change.
