Concert Rebels

We live in an activated and inspired world with endless examples of the human experience. Music and art give us the opportunity to add space and time to our understanding of humanity, but so much of this artistic expression is limited by high entry levels. While standard beginner repertoire gives the opportunity for vocal development, it lacks modern themes and students are forced to re-imagine the stories or even change text to perform it authentically. How amazing would it be to create an anthology of new music intended for young voices using the text of inspiring youth activists?

Enter, The Young Activists’ Songbook: An anthology of new works for young voices. In collaboration with the Ruth Asawa School of the Arts (RASOTA) in San Francisco and Kids & Art Healing Pediatric Center, Concert Rebels is commissioning new works to be performed by the Vocal & Piano Department at RASOTA under the direction of Michael Desnoyers! This project will give students the opportunity to work with operatic activist Chelsea Hollow and professional composers to premiere brand new works composed especially for their voices. We will develop authentic text song delivery in addition to vocal technique and art song performance traditions.

This fundraiser will raise funds for 2 semesters, which will include 16-26 songs. This repertoire will be composed with young voices in mind and will use the texts from local youth poetry, prose, etc. based in activism, resistance, & unity.
