Relevance in Contemporary Choral Music, from the Nation's Leading Commissioner of Works for Choir
In this free virtual Northwestern Alumni Association (NAA) event, Donald Nally, John W. Beattie Chair of Music and Director of Choral Organizations at the Bienen School of Music, will discuss the intersection of his work with his Grammy-Award winning ensemble, The Crossing, and the choirs of the Bienen School of Music.

The presentation, which will include audio/video examples, will look at Donald's processes and experiences of commissioning and premiering over 125 choral works, many of which address issues of social justice through text and music. He will also discuss how his choirs consistently address presentation and purpose of choral art in 2021, why audiences are increasing for new choral music, and what The New York Times meant in its headline about The Crossing: "America's Most Astonishing Choir Hates Sounding Pretty."

Jun 15, 2021 11:00 AM in Central Time (US and Canada)
