CHORUS OF THE FOREST - GUEST ARTIST
November 2 and 3, 2019 | 1:00 p.m. and 3:00 p.m.
Don’t miss the debut of this interactive choral experience!
Join us for the premiere of New York Botanical Garden's Composer-in Residence Angélica Negrón’s newly commissioned, site-specific work for chorus and soundscape in the Thain Family Forest. At a time when giving a voice to trees is more urgent than ever due to climate change and deforestation, this interactive choral experience explores humanity’s relationship with the forest in a world increasingly dominated by technology.
The Chorus returned from Summer Break to St Paul's Carroll St in Brooklyn on Sept 7 & 8, to record the two contemporary works by current and former Composers-in-Residence featured in April's 'Deus ex Machina' concerts of secular choral music, with organist Nathan Taylor and percussionist Christine Chen:
Congratulations to the Chorus for attaining 2nd place in the Community Division of the American Prize for Choral Performance! For our first-ever submission, this is a great result! Thank you to the panel of judges for all of the hard work over the multiple rounds of decision-making!
You can next hear the Chorus perform as guest artists as part of 'Chorus of the Forest' at New York Botanical Garden on November 2nd and 3rd, or at our own concerts 'Bigger Than My Body' at Irondale Center in Fort Greene on November 22nd and 23rd.
