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

Choral singers and Choir directors: have you ever been part of a choir or know of a choir that improvises regularly, either as part of the warm-up, or to generate new music in performance? Please comment below or message me!

This is for a dissertation project, so there will likely be many follow-ups. So far, I've observed the choir at Trinity Wall Street and talked with Julian and some of their members, but I'm curious to know who else is doing it!

Thanks for your time!
