Fourth Coast Ensemble’s “The Art Song Hour” — June 21, 2020 at 7 pm EDT

The wonderful Chicago-based vocal quartet, Fourth Coast Ensemble, has a new online series: The Art Song Hour.

 On Season 1, Episode 4, entitled Composers and Commissions, composer Andrea Clearfield and I will chat with the quartet, discussing the matter of commissioning. The program will include some of my music recorded by the ensemble (including my setting of The 19th Amendment) — and Andrea’s trio “This Arc Towards Justice,” set to a powerful poem by Angelique V. Nixon, which reflects on the legacy of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr..

Please join us live on Facebook or Zoom on June 21, 2020 at 7 pm EDT. Details here.
