CITY, LOOKING IN
FOR SATB CHOIR
A NOTE FROM THE COMPOSER
"City, Looking In" examines the feeling of looking at a place you love from far away, taking an outsider's perspective, and seeing it as something other than what you know; in place of a friend, you find a monster.
never a murmur of sleep,
always the hum and the haze of half-dreaming,
heave the night from the day--
when do you breathe?
"City, Looking In" was premiered on April 13, 2018 in New Haven, CT. It was performed by Isobel Anthony , Addy Sterrett, Emma Simmons, Bradley Sharpe, Hannah Goodwillie, Will Watson, Zak Fletcher and Edward Vogel. It was conducted by Jacob Gelber. Recording by Jack Lawrence.
