Remember US will premiere on March 18, 2020, at 7:30 p.m., at Vernon Hills High School in Illinois. The live performance of the musical work will begin at 8 p.m. A 35-40 minute work for high school choirs and high school string orchestra, "Remember US" is a joint project among the choral and orchestra directors, American History and American literature teachers at Vernon Hills High School in Illinois. 2 years in the making, "Remember US" is a multimovement reflection of non-dominant voices in American History and literature. The texts represent Harlem Renaissance poets, immigrant and Native American writers, suffragettes, AIDS victims, and more...... The premiere will incorporate visual images, student projects, spoken word with underscoring, and much, much music. Big thanks you's to Jeremy Little, Dana Green, Amanda Carroll and Siobhan Szabo, my collaborators at VHHS.
