An intense, achingly beautiful setting of poetry by Wendell Berry. This dramatic work explores the soulless greed of those who wield power over land, people, information— over the future. At turns pastoral, personal and political, at its conclusion 'Look Out" brims with optimism as the poet and composer invoke a great gathering of energy and courage for the sake of our children, our future.
Inspired by the #MeToo movement, this gentle yet stirring addition to Szymko’s DARE TO BE POWERFUL choral series is appropriate for any occasion reflecting on those challenges that require inner fortitude and courage.
Commissioned by the Cincinnati Children's Choir, River is an urgent call for action and a poignant celebration of new leadership as humanity faces an unknown future on Earth, our only home. Now for SATB!
