ELEMENTS™ celebrates the elements of the Earth: earth, wind, fire, water and metal, each of which has their own special beauty. The concert begins with a short video about the environment and a little information about how we can each contribute effortlessly to preserving it. Then experience beautiful images of nature, followed by nature-themed music encompassing several genres. Musical theater, jazz standards, Latin jazz and music of the 1960s, with talented special guest artists, combine to provide an experience everyone can enjoy. Come to be inspired, and wait for the surprise at the end!

ELEMENTS is part of CONCERTS FOR HEALING™, a multimedia performance series that focuses on issues of health and ecology, uplifting and entertaining through beautiful music while educating about important issues.
