Albany Pro Musica presents, "Star Song"
Albany Pro Musica will present the New York State premiere of Star Song, a 12-movement work for chorus, chamber orchestra, and soloists.
This work, written by APM composer-in-residence Bradley Ellingboe, incorporates texts drawn from a variety of cultures and through a span of centuries ranging from the 8th century BCE to the present day, and sung in English, Latin, Hebrew, and French.
The work examines the idea that we are all made of atoms that are unfathomably old, having been formed at the moment of creation. This performance will feature the American Modern Ensemble.
