Directly prior to the Smith Nature Symposium & Benefit, join us for

for Brushwood Center
Conceived by Sibylle Szaggars Redford 
Underwritten by Nancy Hughes

The Way of the Rain–Voices of Hope for Brushwood Center is an homage to our planet Earth and tells the artistic story about the formation of the Universe, the evolution of all galaxies, and eventually the birth of the unique and beautiful Planet Earth with all its elements. This version of The Way of the Rain is a creation for symphony, choir, solo voices, film, art, and spoken word.

“As artists and through art, we have the power to open minds and bring awareness to our planet’s beauty and fragility. As collaborators we unite to strengthen our voices and like raindrops, together, we nourish the river of life.”

Sibylle Szaggars Redford

The Way of the Rain will be performed June 1, 2018 at the John and Nancy Hughes Theater, Gorton Community Center in Lake Forest.
