Aurea Ensemble

  • Botanical Center at Roger Williams Park 1000 Elmwood Ave. Providence, RI

It is still cold outside, but the tropical warmth of the Botanical Center is the perfect setting for a performance by the renowned Aurea Ensemble of its original Darwin at Sea. Aurea fuses music and the spoken word, and has performed to great acclaim throughout the country. The members of the ensemble are violist Consuelo Sherba, violinist Katherine Winterstein, cellist Emanuel Feldman, harmonica Chris Turner, and actor Nigel Gore.    

Darwin at Sea explores Darwin’s life and creative process with readings from his letters and writings and the poems of Blake, Wordsworth and Coleridge, and with the music of Beethoven and Mendelssohn.
