Five years ago, the Pasadena Master Chorale began a program that mentors and encourages high school-aged students to compose choral music. This year, their program will enter its sixth year, and has inspired Cantabile to do the same. Our final concert of the season will feature world premieres from new high school-aged composers of Boulder. Their voices are those that will frame and develop our future. In preparation for the performance they will be mentored by Kevin Padworski, celebrated Denver composer, Director of Vocal Music at the Colorado Academy, and Artistic Director of The Colorado Chorale. The program will also include music by Padworski and CU composition professor Cecil Effinger, plus other local composers. In addition, Boulder’s choral past will be lifted up as we celebrate the music of those on whom our young composers’ futures rest. Come join us as we listen as we welcome the newest voices of Boulder’s choral community.
