Meet the Composer - Blake Henson

Thomas Circle Singers
Event date: 
29 Sep 2020
Start Time: 
5:00 PM
Conductor / Keynote Speaker: 
James Kreger with Blake Henson

Blake Henson’s “August Moonrise” was composed in 2011 to celebrate the 35th anniversary of TCS. This gorgeous setting of the Sara Teasdale poem has become a treasured and favorite addition to TCS’s repertoire. Director Kreger and Dr. Henson will discuss the piece as well as their thoughts on recent projects and on composing choral music and selecting texts. Those present will be invited to join in a sing-along (via a May 2019 TCS recording) of a performance of the work.
