We are delighted to announce The Summer Singers has commissioned
a choral work from Joshua Shank to celebrate our 20th Season.
Joshua is no stranger to our ensemble. We have performed many of his
compositions in past seasons and were honored, in 2007, to premiere
Purple-Stained Mouth and Yellow Brooms and Cold Mushrooms, two
movements from his Color Madrigals volume. A native of Minnesota,
Joshua currently lives in the Windsor Park neighborhood of Austin, TX
where he is pursuing doctoral studies at the University of Texas.
