Driven by a five-part composition, Symphony for Our World pairs artistry with science as it brings viewers from the depths of the sea up to the coastlines, onto land, through mountains and finally into the sky. Each environment will be accompanied by a different orchestral movement, resulting in a powerful musical tribute to the beauty and wonders of our wild world.
“National Geographic has inspired generations to explore, understand and protect our world. Bringing this type of storytelling to life in symphony is an incredible honor,” said Jason Michael Paul, President of Jason Michael Paul Entertainment, Inc. “We’re bringing together everything I’ve learned from over 20 years in music production with National Geographic to create something truly special.”
