La Jolla Symphony & Chorus performs "SILA"

I thought you might enjoy this four-minute video from last Sunday.
Gloria and I visited the Japanese Friendship Garden in San Diego's Balboa Park.  Our friend Carol was participating in the La Jolla Symphony and Chorus' performance of John  Luther Adams'  Sila:  The Breath of the World.

It's certainly an unusual piece.  I felt it was sort of ghostly, invoking the vague ambience of a science fiction movie soundtrack.  The setting was perfect for music that invokes the spirit with which our planet surrounds us.  Musicians surrounded the pathways of the beautiful garden.

The performance was about seventy minutes long, but my short video captures some of the spirit.
