Coral Symphony – World Premiere

The World Premiere of Anders Paulsson’s Symphonic Tone Poem  CORAL SYMPHONY –  Kumulipo Reflections with Hawai´i Symphony Orchestra conducted by Grammy award winning JoAnn Falletta in their Masterworks Series in Honolulu on April 1st & 2nd 2017 was a great success that received standing ovations at both performances.

The 360 VR CORAL SYMPHONY was premiered at the Resilience Conference in Stockholm on August 21-23, 2017. The Kumulipo Creation Epic has relevance for inspiring better Biosphere Stewardship globally and resonates with many other Creation legends throughout the World. The Symphonic Tone Poem Kumulipo Reflections has also gained appreciation and gratitude among Native Hawaiians as a symbol of reconciliation and restitution, as their sacred ecological creation chant Kumulipo is presented and uplifted in soloist position with a prestigious Symphony Orchestra to an entirely new audience.

In November, 2014, CORAL GUARDIANS went on a network and learning journey to Hawaii. During 10 days, we met with researchers, teachers, students, musicians, community leaders, scientists and volunteers. Many of the meetings were documented on video and will be presented in a documentary that aims to raise awareness about the state of the coral reefs, and what can be done to improve it, among the public and decision-makers in politics and business.
