Map and Directions
A workshop for older children and adolescents. Featuring selections from our
concert program, as well as additional educational activities, this event
explores the emotions of song and what inspires a person to sing.
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.
