Kia ora whānau,
I recently had the honour of having my work Let My Country Awake, for mixed voices, performed by award-winning chamber choir KC Vitas, based in the USA. Their name stands for the Kansas City Vibrating Internal Thyroarytenoids and their mission as a group is to ‘promote the continued creation and performance of “contemporary-classical” vocal music’.
After submitting my piece in a Call for Scores in December 2021, it was a lovely surprise to hear from them. My piece was included in their Spring concert series, with two concerts taking place on May 19 and 21 2023. They did a truly beautiful performance and I’m so grateful they chose to perform my work!
You can read through the full concert programme here which featured a selection of works from the USA, as well as one from South Korea in addition to my work representing Aotearoa.
Feel free to listen to the performance at the link above!
