Sing Out, Mr. President Publication
Date: February 14, 2014
Location: New York, USA
As we approach Presidents Day, we thought it would be appropriate to give attention to the inspiring choral publication "Sing Out, Mr. President" edited by Judith Clurman which includes 16 recently commissioned compositions that draw inspiration and text from the words of American Presidents. The series includes works by Michael Gilbertson, Jake Heggie, John Adams, Nico Muhly, Zachary Wadsworth, Georgia Stitt, Samuel Adler, Jason Robert Brown, and many more.
Have a listen!
The collection has been recorded by Essential Voices USA (conducted by Judith Clurman) and released on Sonoluminus. http://www.sonoluminus.com/p-355-celebrating-the-american-spirit.aspx
The publication is currently available via Hal Leonard:
Happy Presidents Day Weekend from all of us at G. Schirmer!
