Our performance of Noye's Fludde was an interactive community experience; the composer invited the audience to join the chorus on several well-known hymns (Eternal Father Strong to Save and All Praise to Thee (Tallis canon)) while the children enticed the audience to re-connect with the imagination of their childhood by blowing bubbles, coloring, and adding to our array of sidewalk art in the Library's courtyard. In honor of the Hesburgh Library's 50th Anniversary, we sought to capture the unbridled imagination of the child, that imagination that presses us to ask questions about our world, the questions and knowledge that fill the volumes of book, journals, and digital media within our ever-evolving library.
