Vedem Choral Cycle

2010 | Revised 2019 — boychoir/mezzo-soprano/tenor/clarinet/violin/cello and piano.

Libretto by David Mason (b.1954).

This short cycle for children’s chorus uses 3 songs (Home Number One, In Terezin The Mind Was Free and Vedem) from the Vedem oratorio, commissioned by Mina Miller, Founder and Artistic Director and made possibly by a generous grant from the William O and K Carole Ellison Foundation. The work tells the story of the boys of Terezin and their secret magazine Vedem, and the work premiered May 10, 2010 at the Illsley Ball Recital Hall at Benaroya Hall in Seattle, WA.
