Judith Shatin’s Adonai Ro’i Performed by Kenyon Chamber Singers on March 24 at Kenyon College in Gambier, Ohio
 
Judith Shatin’s Adonai Ro’i for SATB chorus will be performed by the Kenyon Chamber Singers on Saturday, March 24 – 8::00 PM as part of their concert in Rosse Hall Auditorium on the campus of Kenyon Colege in Gambier, Ohio. The performance is sponsored by the Kenyon College Music Department.
 
The composer has written about the piece, “Adonai Ro’i flowed from my response to the assasination of Yitzhak Rabin on 11/4/95, and is dedicated to his memory. I composed the main draft during the week following his death. Though one feels that no response is adequate, music, as well as this particular psalm, offer some comfort.” More about it at http://judithshatin.com/?p=445.
