Artists are tackling climate change and environmental dangers through Earth Song, a reimagined piece of musical art from Frank Ticheli’s a cappella choral work.

Danielle Russo is at the heart of this project, using her voice to bring awareness to the environmental issues that we are now facing. The team also includes environmentalists, conservationists, historians, community organizers, and activists.

Their research not only found high amounts of pollution in Superfund and Brownfield sites, but also the inequality as to how different demographics will be affected. Black and Latinx communities in Kings County are at a 65% higher probability of being affected by climate change and its effects in these areas. 

This team of artists and activists has created a breathtaking piece of art that paints a picture of how climate change is affecting these areas. 

Russo said, “Earth Song is for everyone because climate change impacts everyone in New York City. One of the main issues our work seeks to address is the fact that the local government is legislating climate change protection plans and protocols exclusively, not inclusively. This needs to change, and immediately. We must stop, breathe, and take action, and the work starts here with working to raise awareness through creative mediums of song and dance.”
