MDI Science Cafe Online – The Warming Sea
October 18 @ 5:00 pm - 6:00 pm
The topic “The Warming Sea” will be presented by Kate Dickerson and Lucas Richman in an online MDI Science Cafe program on Oct. 18.
Maine Science Festival Founder & Director Kate Dickerson and Grammy Award-winning composer and Bangor Symphony Orchestra Music Director Lucas Richman will discuss their project “The Warming Sea.” Commissioned by the Maine Science Festival, “The Warming Sea” is a symphonic exploration of hope in the face of climate change.
A vital part of this project were the interviews between Lucas and those who have direct knowledge of climate change in the Gulf of Maine. Lucas met with scientists and experts in the summer and fall of 2019, as well as middle school students throughout the state. These interviews and conversations provided the foundation for “The Warming Sea.” Dickerson and Richman will talk about how the project came to be, what it was like to work together, and what they hope the future of the project brings. “The Warming Sea” will have its world premiere March 19, 2022, as it kicks open the 2022 Maine Science Festival.
