Online talk by composer Ēriks Ešenvald

Posted by ElaineCunningham

Internationally renown composer Ēriks Ešenvald will be joining us from his native Latvia to discuss his work and answer questions.

Ēriks Ešenvalds is one of the most sought-after composers working today, with a busy commission schedule and performances of his music heard on every continent. He is also a popular public speaker, and Providence Singers is delighted to host this online conversation.

Registered participants will also receive a link to the recorded premiere performance of his "Northern Lights" multimedia symphony, as well as a documentary entitled "Nordic Light: A Composer's Diary" that follows the process of creating this symphony, including three expeditions to Alaska, Iceland, Greenland, and Scandinavia to collect folksongs and legends about aurora.

This is an online event. Zoom credentials will be emails to registered quests on Saturday, April 24. The session is free to Providence Singers members and members of the American Choral Directors Association (email marketing@providencesingers.org for details) and $5 for all other guests.
