With songs, poems, and stories, Maria Popova presides over the ceremonial planting of Sam Van Aken’s Tree of 40 Fruit: New York Apples, a grafted tree that will yield 40 different New York apples. We will be performing an original choral invocation in collaboration with composer Paola Prestini, sung as a blessing song for the tree.
