Voices of the Silenced

By New Hampshire Master Chorale (other events)

3 Dates Through Nov 24, 2019

"We realize the importance of our voice, when we are silenced." - Malala Yousafzai

A thought-provoking new work by Kim André Arnesen representing overlooked voices in our society.

For over a year, we worked with the composer to select texts by people from different cultures and periods who have discovered and used their own voice through poetry. Having a voice and being heard are two very different things, and this work encourages us to hear them, to believe them, and to support them. Each movement of the work represents a different community voice, for example an AIDS survivor living in New Hampshire, a refugee exiled in Spain, the father of a son with Down syndrome, and a person imprisoned for following the Bahá’í faith. Additionally, author Euan Tait was commissioned to write I am More Than You See, an original
poem to complete the libretto.
