Description

At our June concerts, we are honored to welcome our Composer in Residence Dr. Stephen Newby to the podium. Dr. Newby will present premieres of new works that have been commissioned by the NWCC, which will tell the story of African lives lost while crossing the Middle Passage en-route to a life of enslavement in America. As the NWCC addresses our collective histories – including singing almost exclusively Eurocentric music – and our desire to create a more equitable and just world for people of all races. This collaboration provides an opportunity to mourn and commemorate the many African lives lost in the process of building the Americas.
