The inspiring 90-minute, live orchestral performance uses groundbreaking imagery and storytelling from over 130 years of National Geographic history matched in perfect synchronization with an orchestra and choir. The show is based on the national television broadcast of “Symphony for Our World,” an hour-long special that premiered globally earlier this year in 140 countries, commercial-free, on Nat Geo WILD.
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 coastlines, onto land, through mountains, and 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 a 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.”
“Symphony for Our World has been thrilling audiences worldwide since it premiered last Earth Day,” said Gary Knell, chairman of National Geographic Partners. “The show embodies our commitment to inspire people to care about the planet, now. We are happy to be bringing it to audiences in North America. Our partner, Jason Michael Paul Entertainment, Inc., has done a phenomenal job bringing National Geographic’s 130 years of storytelling to life in a new, incredibly moving format that enables audiences to better understand the world and their place in it.”
