Music for the Earth

Paul Winter’s Solstice Saga video retrospective of the first forty years of the Winter Solstice Celebrations has been produced under the aegis of the non-profit Music for the Earth. This has made it possible for us to offer the film free on Youtube.

Music for the Earth will be the production context for much of Paul Winter’s future work, including his epic project Flyways, a celebration of the great bird migration from southern Africa up the Rift Valley through the Middle East to Eurasia, and back. 

Statement of Purpose

Music for the Earth is a 501(c)(3) non-profit foundation dedicated to exploring ways that music can awaken our innate sense of relationship with the natural world, and inspire involvement in the preservation of biodiversity and the natural environments of the Earth.

“The future of music may not lie entirely with music itself,
but rather in the way it makes itself a part with –
in the way it encourages and extends rather than limits,
the aspirations of ideals of the people –
the finer things that humanity does and dreams of.”
-Charles Ives
