with Brooklyn Youth Chorus
A STEM ARTS WORLD PREMIERE & HOP PRODUCTION
The Hop’s latest STEM Arts composer shares work looking at the forests that existed on and beyond Dartmouth grounds before the arrival of Europeans.
“Violinist, vocalist, and composer Carla Kihlstedt has traversed styles and defied hierarchies for her entire career.” —Chicago Reader
The versatile and polished Brooklyn Youth Chorus gives voice to the forests that once stood on and around the Dartmouth campus in this work created in collaboration with Dartmouth’s Environmental Studies and Native American Studies programs. An internationally recognized violinist, singer, improvisor and composer whose collaborators have included Tom Waits, Fred Frith, Colin Jacobsen and the International Contemporary Ensemble, Kihlstedt is the Hop’s fourth STEM Arts composer, following composers who were in residence in the Departments of Biology and Mathematics and the Thayer School of Engineering.
