Notes

  • Program notes: 

    Anni’s Constant by Caroline Shaw, was one of 14 sections of Black Mountain Songs, co-commissioned by Brooklyn Youth Chorus and Brooklyn Academy of Music with support from New Music USA and premiered at the Brooklyn Academy of Music’s Next Wave Festival in November 2014. Silent Voices shares the stories of individuals who have been silenced or diminished by cultural, social, religious or familial circumstances. Lyrics and other texts for Black Mountain Songs have been drawn from original writings, interviews, radio archives, historical texts, and material generated from story slams hosted with the Peabody Award-winning radio program The Moth and workshops with Speak Truth To Power, a human rights education program. The project’s songs and stories draw on the rich personal lives of ordinary individuals, cultural icons and historical figures, interpreted through the visions of contemporary artists and composers.
