This concert series marks a special commission for the Newport Symphony Orchestra and greater Newport community. Featuring ecological composer Sara Carina Graef, this commission is to commemorate the beauty, history, and future of the Yakona Nature Preserve through the beauty of symphony music.
This collaboration between the Yakona Preserve, Sara Graef, and the NSO also features imagery of the Yakona Nature Preserve as captured by photographers Rena Olson and Bill Posner, and coincides with an exhibit of the same name at Newport Performing Arts Center’s “Olive Street Gallery”.
