Andrea Ramsey on Her Newly Commissioned Work, “But a Flint Holds Fire” in Support of the Flint Water Crisis

September 26, 2016 -

I was recently introduced to an article on the Michigan ACDA website (editor, Jed Scott). It was an interview with composer Andrea Ramsey about her recently commissioned work, “But a Flint Holds Fire.” The piece was composed for a Chorus America consortium project and is part of an effort to raise awareness

Another quick repertoire poll.... I'm looking for a great setting of the Te Deum - *under 6 minutes* (preferably anthem length) with piano or organ, up to moderately difficult for a capable SATB+ church choir. Excellent soloists, if that matters. Thanks! ... See MoreSee Less

Jennifer Benton ScogginI'm fond of the Rutter Te Deum--it's a bit over seven minutes.

Kenny WiserDvorak Te Deum is great, though it does require a pretty good soprano soloist.

The ACDA Honor Choir made up of the top high school singers from all across the U.S. came together in Washington, D.C. for three days of rehearsals, sightseeing, and a sold-out concert in Old Town Alexandria before departing on a concert tour of Prague, Salzburg, and Vienna. All of the concert venues were at full capacity and people were turned away at both the kick-off concert in Alexandria and at the first concert in Prague! Other highlights include a wonderful exchange with a school just outside of Salzburg, impromptu singing at various sights along the Sound of Music Tour, and a workshop and concert with Insingizi, a trio from Zimbabwe based in Vienna. Post-tour communication with ACDA include reports of strong friendships forged during the tour and plans for choir members to reconnect at upcoming regional conferences.
