Rice University: Former glacier inspires orchestral work

The former glacier Okjökull made international headlines in the summer of 2019 when Rice anthropologists Cymene Howe and Dominic Boyer organized the first memorial service for a glacier lost to climate change. Now, it has inspired an orchestral work. “OK, Goodbye,” composed by Marcus Maroney, had its world premiere Sept. 25 with the Houston chamber orchestra ROCO.
