Consortio, the revolutionary marketplace that connects composers’ consortium ideas and ensembles who make them a reality, focuses on an upcoming project every week. This week’s spotlight is on Jonny Priano’s She Walks in Beauty, which will be for SATB double chorus.
Jonny says that Lord Byron’s “She Walks in Beauty” is a “powerful text lends itself to a dramatic musical setting.” He has “conceived a lyrical melody that will capture the beauty of the woman described in the poem. This melody and its countermelody will be shared throughout all of the voice parts in homophonic and polyphonic textures.”

Consortio believes in helping emerging, promising composers like Jonny grow their networks. Get to know him through his Consortio profile and help support his new music. The funding deadline for this project is September 3rd.
Consortio is making commissioning easier, more accessible, and more impactful for all involved. Most of the consortium projects on Consortio cost only a fraction more than the purchase of a set of octavos, so a new music experience is available to nearly everyone.
