“Understory”, Brooklyn Youth Chorus, Tuesday, April 16th, 5:30PM, Russo Atrium, Hood Museum, Hanover
Free and unticketed
Young singers speak for the trees!
The versatile and polished Brooklyn Youth Chorus performs a sound installation that gives voice to the forests that once stood on and around the Dartmouth campus. The event is FREE and makes a highly novel use of the Hood’s new Russo Aitrum.
Called Understory, the composition was commissioned from Carla Kihlstedt, an internationally recognized violinist, singer, improvisor and composer whose collaborators have included Tom Waits, Fred Frith, Colin Jacobsen and the International Contemporary Ensemble. Kihlstedt is the Hop’s fourth STEM Arts composer, following composers who were in residence in the Departments of Biology and Mathematics and the Thayer School of Engineering.
