Dr. Quinton White, Guest Presenter
“Life on this earth first emerged from the sea. As the polar ice melts and sea levels rise, we humans find ourselves facing the prospect that once again we may quite literally become ocean.” John Luther Adams’ words convey his inspiration in composing this luscious score, performed by the Symphony to commemorate Earth Day 2018.
Dr. Quinton White, Professor of Biology and Marine Science at Jacksonville University, will give a presentation before the concert on the history of human impact on the Florida environment and especially on the St. Johns River.
