Participatory piece, creation for accentus

America is boundless. At least, that is what Eric Whitacre seemed to be saying when he deployed his virtual choir for Lux aurumque, a work that originally reunited 185 voices from 12 different countries via YouTube. Equally inventive, the South American Violeta Cruz, commissioned by accentus, wrote a participatory piece combining a professional choir, a children’s choir and voices in the audience. Completed by works by Bernstein, Barber and Glass, the concert showcases the rising generation of composers, and medieval, jazz and repetitive music influences.
