The Silent Spring Project, named after Carson's best-known book, is described as "an immersive musical experience, surrounding the audience with sound, light, music and storytelling." The work "explores our ideas of environmentalism, sustainability and humanity's role in the natural world."

The music is composed by the Trillium Ensemble and composer Mark Stanley Fromm. The Ensemble includes Elise DePasquale, Rachael Stutzman and Katie Palumbo on flute, clarinet and piano.



The work premieres at 8 p.m. tonight as part of the New Hazlett's CSA Performance Series. The series is subscription-based, but single-ticket-buyers are welcome. 

Tickets cost $20-25 and are available here.

The New Hazlett is located at 6 Allegheny Square East, on the North Side.
