BBC Proms: John Luther Adams' - In the Name of the Earth" (Prom 66)

  • Royal Albert Hall Kensington Gore SW7 2AP (map)

This is an exciting new work involving eight separate choirs - approximately 600 singers.

Tickets available from David £6.50 per seat

Luther Adams is a master of large-scale musical spectacles – sonic installations that take the natural world not just as their inspiration but also as a stage.

In the Name of the Earth celebrates the elements in a musical meditation on rivers, lakes, mountains and deserts.

The Proms audience immersed in the sound of eight choirs – totalling more than 600 singers – placed around the auditorium. Marshalling these huge vocal forces are conductors Neville Creed, Neil Ferris, Simon Halsey and David Temple.

10:40am: Audience members who would like to participate in this morning’s performance are invited to a preparatory sing- through of the final theme of ‘In the Name of the Earth’.
