WomenSing is thrilled to announce an exciting large-scale commission by renowned composer, Shawn Kirchner.
Inspired by the album Folkjul, a Christmas suite influenced by Swedish folk traditions, WomenSing’s artistic director, Ofer dal Lal, invited Mr. Kirchner to dream up a concert-length American “folk Yule”.The work features a combination of Mr. Kirchner’s instrumental improvisations and carol settings from American song and spiritual traditions. Mr. Kirchner has woven these carols and songs into a dramatic arc which tells of the return of light after dark times.
