Looking for new music? Looking for composers to commission? Hear choral premieres for developing and advanced ensembles by emerging Minnesota composers performed by the VocalEssence Ensemble Singers.
VocalEssence ReMix encourages breakout musical artists-whether you sing in a rock band or play classical music-to write for voice. Four talented, emerging composers/songwriters are selected annually to have a six-month one-on-one composer mentorship with renowned composers Libby Larsen, Carol Barnett, J. David Moore, or Timothy Takach as they each write two choral works, one of which is suitable for high school-level choirs. The program also includes a performance of the new music by the professional VocalEssence Ensemble Singers, and possible commission and publication through the VocalEssence Music Press.
VocalEssence ReMix is a collaboration between VocalEssence, the American Composers Forum, the American Choral Directors Association of Minnesota, and the Jerome Foundation.
