TCS is thrilled to present the Pulitzer and Grammy Award winning piece Become Ocean by American composer John Luther Adams. Commissioned by the Seattle Symphony and premiered in 2013, this single movement work was inspired by the oceans of Alaska and the Pacific Northwest. From a note in the score: "Life on this earth first emerged from the sea. As the polar ice melts and sea level rises, we humans find ourselves facing the prospect that once again we may quite literally become ocean."

Conducted by Matthew Aubin and Mark Seto
