Preview - The Alaska Suite:

Carbon Washington cordially invites you to an evening of climate action like you’ve never experienced. This St. Patrick’s Day, Sunday, March 17, at 6 p.m., please join us for CarbonWA in Concert: “The Alaska Suite — a story of beauty, loss and hope,” offering music and inspiration for action against carbon pollution. It takes place at Madrona Commons, 832 – 32nd Avenue, Seattle, WA 98122.

The Alaska Suite is composed by Nelda Swiggett and features a five-piece chamber jazz ensemble, with the mission of using “the power of artistic expression — live music, spoken words, images, and poetry — to connect audiences deeply and emotionally to the scientific realities of climate change, and to inform and inspire them to act now to address it.”

Audience response speaks to Swiggett’s success at achieving her goal:

“… spliced with a dialogue about climate science and solutions. It touches the emotional edges of our understanding and invites action from a deeper place.”
—Louise Stonington

“… wonderfully inspiring…. The content was informative without being preachy; the music was magical….” — Gail M.
