awakenings: music of diversity

awakenings features music written for upper voices performed by 14 professional singers of Polyphony: Voices of New Mexico under the direction of Maxine Thévenot. The concerts feature the World-Premiere performances of a commissioned work by award-winning American composer Jenny Olivia Johnson titled, "the many poems she learned as a child." The commission was generously sponsored by Phyllis and Roderick Kennedy in memory of Rebecca Davis Jennings. 

The concert will also include music by composers from the LGBTQ+, indigenous, and Latinx communities. Some of the composers our audiences can expect to hear include the music of Hildegard von Bingen, Sarah Quartel, Mari Esabel Valverde, Dale Trumbore, and Joan Szymko.
