Jason Max Ferdinand

Union of Love

SATB divisi

A touching love ballad that was performed for the first time at Carnegie Hall by Dr. Jason Max Ferdinand. Union of Love, which is part of the National Concerts Series, begins with a soprano solo and soon transitions into the choir’s entrance. The final cadence of this motet is not the typical delicate quietness of most love songs, but is a powerful and impassioned statement.

Pearl Shangkuan


(We Are Moving)

Part of the Pearl Shangkuan Choral Series, this lively composition in the isiXhosa language celebrates life in the face of death and grief, carrying the past at heart while moving together in dance. It was written in the AfroClassical style, where indigenous African musical approaches meet classical form. It is appropriate for concerts because it provides solo opportunities, demonstrates call and response, has a wide range of treble, and offers movement opportunities.

Rosephanye Powell

Langston Dreams

Vocal Solo

Rosephanye Powell has adapted Langston Hughes’ hopeful dreams poetry to music. While To Sit and Dream is more private and reflective, Hold Fast to Dreams and I Dream a World should be performed with vigor and passionate excitement. These contemporary art songs deserve to be a part of any voice student’s study and performance repertoire.
