Hear Her Song Premiere
Regular Price $15.00
With support from the National Endowment for the Arts, this project commissioned female composers from Hear Her Song to arrange their songs for El Sistema USA® member youth ensembles. This collaboration not only provided youth with new music from the Hear Her Song canon, but also provided professional opportunities for composers, and exposed young musicians to music of modern female composers that highlights stories of women leadership. In engaging with this project, ESUSA students have learned new forms of artistic advocacy that broadens our understanding as individuals and as a society.
At this premiere, students from INTEMPO performed “You and I” written by Morley, students from Juneau Alaska Music Matters performed “Hear My Song”. by Dom Jones, students from Make Music NOLA performed “Someday” by Faye Chiao, and students from Sistema Utah performed “Without Doubt” by Madeline Myers.
