CLIMATE ACTION IN CONCERT: One Cello, One Planet
Here’s a woman sharing her gifts in service to addressing climate change.
During her many years living in Asheville, Judith Glixon was principal cellist with the Asheville Symphony and the Brevard Chamber Orchestra. She’s returning from Boston to North Carolina this summer to perform a series of solo cello benefit concerts titled One Cello, One Planet, highlighting the urgency of climate change.
The proceeds of this series, initiated by Scott Hardin-Nieri, director of Creation Care Alliance of WNC, support the Alliance and its work empowering faith organizations to act on climate change. Personally, I can see Judith traveling nationwide, invited to present this benefit concert to raise funds for similar groups and to add a welcome expressive dimension to climate change conferences.
One Cello, One Planet concerts take place starting August 8 in Raleigh and continue in Winston-Salem, Black Mountain, Tryon, and Hendersonville, ending in Asheville on August 25 — see the schedule below.
The program, including compositions by Bach, Benjamin Britten, Maurice Ravel and Daniel Crawford, leads you on a musical journey through the history of humanity from our origins to the present day.
“We’re excited for Judith’s tour to blend the arts, science and spirituality in our community,” says Scott. “So often when we explore climate change it’s with charts, data and temperatures. My hope is that exploring this issue in another way, through music, may touch something deeper within us too.”

We are a one-of-a-kind magazine that provides local, regional, national and international information about women’s lives and education, performing and visual arts and writing, the environment, green living and sustainability and regional Western North Carolina business, people and events. “Villages preserve culture: dress, food and dance are a few examples. As villages grow in population and turn into towns, local cafes make way for large American chains. Handmade leather sandals are discarded for a pair of Western sneakers. Due to its small size, a village fosters a tight-knit sense of community. Justpeace.org explains the meaning of the African proverb, “It takes a village,” by stating that a sense of community is critical to maintaining a healthy society. Village members hold a wealth of information regarding their heritage: they know about the ancient traditions, methods of production and the resources of the land. When villages become dispersed or exterminated in times of war, this anthropological knowledge disappears. Large cities are not as conducive to growing and producing foods such as fruits and vegetables. Villages, on the other hand, usually have ample amounts of land and other resources necessary for growing conditions.” The Importance of Villages by Catherine Capozzi Our Mission SheVille.org provides readers with information important to women’s lives and well-being.
