Event Description:
Warrior Songs: A World Premiere
Naropa presents a five-movement choral concerto by founding music faculty member, artist, jazz drummer, and improvising percussionist Jerry Granelli, in collaboration with composer Peter-Anthony Togni with funding from the Canadian government. Boulder's Ars Nova Singers, one of the leading choral ensembles in the U.S., in its 28th season, will perform the piece. Anchored in Chögyam Trungpa Rinpoche's poetry, the work also draws from the Spanish mystic St. John of the Cross, the Roman Catholic liturgy, Da Pacem, and a speech Malcolm X gave in March 1964.
