I recently co-created and directed Silent Voices with Dianne Berkun-Menaker and the Brooklyn Youth Chorus. It was a year long series dealing with race, gender and class. We performed multimedia concert previews at National Sawdust and FIAF (as part of Prototype festival) and premiered the full work at BAM in the Opera House.
Composers included Jeff Beal, Mary Kouyoumdjian, Paul Miller (DJ Spooky), Nico Muhly, Shara Nova, Toshi Reagon, Kamala Sankaram, and Caroline Shaw. Writers included Michelle Alexander, Patricia Bell-Scott, Pauli Murray, Claudia Rankine, Eleanor Roosevelt, George Savile, and Brooklyn Youth Chorus members.
