Special Event

The Warming Sea

March 19, 2022 at 7pm
Collins Center for the Arts
Lucas Richman, conductor

The Maine Science Festival is returning in March 2022 and the headlining event is the world premiere of Lucas Richman’s The Warming Sea, performed by the Bangor Symphony Orchestra.

The evening will combine art and science, beginning with an overview of climate change in Maine from some of Maine’s leading climate researchers followed by a short film of interviews that Lucas Richman had with scientists, researchers, and practitioners in the Gulf of Maine. The interviews that you will see provided the foundation for Richman’s The Warming Sea. Then we’ll present The Warming Sea, performed by the Bangor Symphony Orchestra with visuals created by Chuck Carter. We’ll end with the opportunity to hear from Richman and many of the scientists he interviewed about their unique collaboration.
