On this week's Prairie Performances, Friday at 7 pm on WILL-FM 90.9, listen to a very special concert with the Champaign-Urbana Symphony Orchestra, featuring three different local musical groups. The new oratorio Terra Nostra by Stacy Garrop will be performed by the Champaign-Urbana Symphony Orchestra, joined by the University of Illinois Oratorio Society and the Central Illinois Children’s Chorus. Cast in three sections, Part I: Creation of the World, Part II: The Rise of Humanity, and Part III: Searching for Balance, Terra Nostra celebrates the beauty of our planet and explores how we can create more awareness for our planet’s plight to find a balance for living within the Earth’s resources. The performance includes soloists Sarah Gartshore singing soprano, Betany Coffland singing mezzo soprano, Steven Soph singing tenor and David Govertsen singing bass.
