A musical exploration of space with the world premiere of Christopher Tin’s oratorio To Shiver The Sky, which was commissioned through the highest-funded classical music Kickstarter in history. Two-time Grammy-winning composer Christopher Tin is a master of the concert stage, silver screen, and gaming world. Renowned for his excellence as a groundbreaking and compelling creator, Tin is the first composer to receive a Grammy Award for video game music. His works are equally at home in venerable concert halls and the fantastical worlds created in the digital world. Tin’s work was featured on the soundtrack of blockbuster film Crazy Rich Asians, and his original works are beloved by millions through music for the game Civilization IV. To Shiver the Sky, a musical exploration of mankind’s conquest of the sky for orchestra, chorus, and soloists, sets texts from pioneers of flight from Leonardo da Vinci to Amelia Earhart.
