Music of a silent world, Chanticleer sings the songs of the natural world and gives a voice to the otherwise voiceless rocks and stones and trees and rivers that share our planet with us.
Co-commissioned with Chanticleer, their program centers around a new arrangement of Majel Connerys The Rivers are our Brothers. “The goal, she says, is to give nature a voice. I wanted to allow these vibrant things to speak on their own behalf.” While inhabiting those voices, the program also explores what the world might be like without them. Repertoire includes music by William Byrd, Heinrich Isaac, and Max Reger, new arrangements of Wildflowers by Tom Petty and The Weather by Lawrence, and a new commission from Chanticleers’s composer in residence, Ayanna Woods.
