Join us for the world premieres of “Holding Our Breath” and “Call Across,” recipients of the American Choral Directors Association’s Genesis Prize. Following the video premieres, composers, poet, and Conspirare artistic director Craig Hella Johnson will share insight into the creative process and what emerges in the journey from grief to hope. Attendees will be invited to ask questions!
RE:Genesis is the culmination of new methods of collaboration born during the pandemic among composers, poets, singers, filmmakers, and listeners to ensure new music continues to be heard. RE:Genesis continues the ritual of gathering to share in new music and offers the opportunity to connect with fellow artists and listeners. Filmmaker Andrew J. Timm and his team join with Conspirare again to take Holding our Breath and Call Across to a whole new level of virtual sophistication and creativity in ways we wouldn’t have thought of before COVID-19. Each song will be staged in digitally-created fantasy worlds that speak to the very meaning and spirit of these works. Timm and his team previously collaborated with Conspirare on Unity: Songs of Invitation.
Ticket price: FREE, online lobby will open 10 minutes prior to showtime. Advance RSVP available at the event webpage to receive day-of notifications.
