Tang Readers Chorus

2015

With the blessing of the Readers Chorus in Los Angeles I travelled to the Tang Museum at Skidmore College in Saratoga Springs, NY, to put together a local Readers Chorus group and initiate the creation of new 'Readers' pieces. This workshop residency was part of a semester long engagement between the museum/college and L.A.'s Machine Project called "The Platinum Collection (Live by Special Request)."  After several introductory workshops, 4 new pieces were created by Skidmore students and further rehearsed with a group of 30+ students forming "The Tang Readers Chorus." The residency culminated in a performance at the museum to an enthusiastic and appreciative audience of friends, students, faculty, museum staff and members of the Saratoga Springs community. The entire progress of this Reader's Chorus residency (complete with audio recordings and scores) can be found on the dedicated blog:
