After a year’s pandemic postponement, Christopher Tin’s monumental, multi-media salute to flight finally comes to the stage of The Anthem! Two-time Grammy-winning composer Christopher Tin is a master of the concert stage, silver screen, and gaming world. His work was featured on the soundtrack of blockbuster film Crazy Rich Asians, and he is beloved by millions thanks to his music for the game Civilization IV. To Shiver the Sky, a musical exploration of humankind’s journeys into the heavens, marries texts from pioneers of flight—from Leonard da Vinci to Amelia Earhart—to Tin’s inspiring and wonder-filled score for orchestra, chorus, and soloists.
