NATION & VocalEssence
Featuring Sam Bergman (viola) & Cicely Parnas (cello)
This month in Minneapolis and St. Paul, I’m part of the launch of a new paradigm in choral concerts. A collaboration between myself, Timothy C. Takach and VocalEssence, these concerts are designed to truly break down any accessibility barrier between performer and audience and will feature a blend of contemporary choral music and popular styles in one experience.
This concert will also present 4 new works for choir by participants in the VocalEssence ReMix program, designed to mentor breakout composers in writing for voice.

Come find me in the exhibit hall! I’ll be exhibiting with Graphite Publishing, and I will have exciting new songs to share with you, for both professional and student singers. I will also be unveiling a few commissioning consortium opportunities, and performing in a few of the publisher showcase sessions.
Deadline to apply: April 27, 2018
Want to study choral composition with me?
The week-long Composer’s Institute is devoted to the emerging composer. Each composer selected to participate will receive individual composition lessons and attend seminars on the commissioning process and advanced choral writing. Compositions will be rehearsed and performed by the CORO Vocal Artists. During the week-long institute, composers will spend time fine tuning their existing composition and have the opportunity to create a new piece with the guidance of Jocelyn Hagen & Tim Takach. CORO Conducting Faculty, Dr. Moody and Oltman, also spend time with each composer to discuss their compositions and offer insight into the composer/conductor relationship.
