Virtual World Premiere
Voters’ Broadcast by Lisa Bielawa

 

Multiple University of Michigan, Kaufman Music Center, and Wayne State University ensembles — including the University Musical Society Choral Union — will participate in Lisa Bielawa’s new composition, Voters’ Broadcast, designed to stimulate voter engagement and political awareness through the act of making music.

The work, presented in three parts, is a broadly participatory musical performance for an unlimited number of voices and instruments, including the UMS Choral Union and other U-M ensembles, with text excerpted from Sheryl Oring’s I Wish to Say. Bielawa wishes to stimulate voter engagement and political awareness through community participation in her composition. Voters’ Broadcast hopes to challenge the isolation of pandemic lockdown conditions by literally giving voice to the concerns of fellow citizens during the lead-up to the 2020 Presidential election.
