In what is expected to be a stellar tribute to planet earth, Loreena will be making a guest appearance at the world premiere of The Way of the Rain: Voices of Hope event at New York’s Carnegie Hall Friday December 1, 2017 at 8 p.m.
Under the Artistic Direction of environmental artist Sibylle Szaggars Redford in collaboration with composer Tim Janis, the benefit includes an impressive line-up of highly-acclaimed artists who are all coming together to promote awareness and support for the protection of the planet.
Loreena’s roughly 30-minute appearance will include her ‘first-ever’ live performance of “To the Fairies They Draw Near,” from the 2008 Disney movie, Tinker Bell.
“I’m grateful to be joining such an incredibly talented group of people, all of whom are deeply passionate about the state of the earth,” says Loreena. “Indeed, there are many such people around the world doing everything they can to support this planet and its rich biodiversity.”
