Robert Kyr’s A Time for Life: FILM

Cappella Romana

Special launch event in collaboration with Anima Mundi Productions, on Sunday, April 18 at 5:30 Pacific

Join us for a new multimedia video performance of Robert Kyr’s stunning environmental oratorio, A Time for Life, now reimagined with visuals of breathtaking landscapes created and curated by the composer.

Commissioned and performed by renowned vocal ensemble Cappella Romana, A Time for Life traces a journey from the glory of creation to the perils of our current situation and finally to a hopeful future in which humanity serves as a steward of the earth.

As the relationship between humanity and our environment stands at a perilous crossroads, the regenerative power of the arts is more important than ever. Music, poetry, and the visual arts have the unique ability to reconnect us with our hearts, returning us to a state of peaceful equilibrium within ourselves and our community. 

“Kyr’s music wept for the Earth. It shuddered and then grew stronger, blooming into beauty before evaporating in silence.”
—The Oregonian
