WHAT IS OURS: MUSIC FOR AN AMERICA IN PROGRESS

NOTUS, Dominick DiOrio

IU Jacobs School of Music - Auer Hall - Bloomington, Indiana

8:00 pm

In July 2020, NOTUS was to have travelled to the 12th World Symposium on Chora Music in Auckland, New Zealand... but the universe had other plans. Here is a program planned for then but updated for now, as America wrestles with its own multifarious history and intersections of cultural voices of today. Featuring Jerod Impichchaachaaha' Tate's Visions of a Child: A Pueblo Lullaby, Carlos Cordero's Ayúdame, Andrea Ramsey's Stomp on the Fire, Reena Esmail's Tuttarana, Joel Thompson's America Will Be!, and the live world premieres of Moira Smiley's Wire You Here and Dominick DiOrio's A Chain is Broken (with a commissioned original poem by Iranian American poet Khashayar Tonekaboni). Also featuring conductors Peter Kadeli and Alex Koppel.

OUR STORY IS NOT OVER

Mendelssohn Chorus of Philadelphia - Dominick DiOrio

Suzanne Roberts Theater - Broad Street - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania

We grieve, we process, we begin to rebuild

Loss moves from pain into healing. Oppression moves from pain into resilience and power. Anguish moves from pain into hope. In March, we bring together music and poetry for a program of resilience, hope, and affirmation to take us beyond our current state to a new vision of being and belonging.

Featuring GRAMMY Award Winning baritone soloist Dashon Burton in both art song and choral music interwoven with poetry by Elizabeth Scanlon. Also featuring music of Reena Esmail, Dale Trumbore, Joel Thompson, and a world premiere by Philadelphia composer Melissa Dunphy.

NOTUS, Dominick DiOrio

Originally commissioned by Susan Swaney and Voces Novae, The Vonnegut Requiem is an incredible collaboration between eight living composers (Cary Boyce, Stacy Garrop, Dale Trumbore, Gabriel Lubell, Malcolm Dalglish, Lauren Bernofsky, Don Freund and Moira Smiley) and created in the most Vonnegut-ty way in the spirit of his granfalloons. Come and hear the texts that KV wrote when he first experienced the Latin Requiem, and hear tradition kaleidoscopically distilled. Also featuring the annual student winners of the NOTUS Student Composition Contest.
