“Through her smart and resplendent exploration of age-old musical formulas, Snider’s eco-inspired Mass for the Endangered is a blast from the past that resonates profoundly in the present” ~ All Things Considered (NPR)

A polyphonic plea for the Earth written by one of today’s most compelling composers, Mass for the Endangered is a luminous and arresting work that carries its urgent ecological message with power and beauty. Before the concert, join our environmental partners for activities and resources that protect our environment, and after the concert, come chat with the composer.
