Chorus pro Musica presents world premiere: In Childhood’s Thicket by Andy Vores

Sun, November 5, 2017 @ 3:00 pm - 4:30 pm

Free

Join us for a rare FREE concert! The centerpiece of this afternoon of new and adventurous music is a world premiere of In Childhood’s Thicket by Andy Vores.

Composer Andy Vores weaves together poetry by local writer Frederick Choi with diverse nursery rhymes that feature odd situations, curious occurrences, and bad behavior, to explore of how the puzzlements of childhood can lead to finding a place and identity in the world. The music creates a unique sonic world by means of an electronic and environmental soundtrack and the use of looping pedals to create webs of sound by superimposing the singing of the chorus upon itself.

In 2016, Chorus pro Musica premiered Vores’s Spencer the Rover, for chorus and brass band, which was also commissioned by the chorus.

Featuring Lyn Eustis, Soprano and Jacob Cooper, Baritone.

This concert is sponsored in part by Tufts University and is included in the Tufts University Sunday Concert Series.
