Panel discussion led by Alice Parker, Choral Composing Legend and Joyful Noise Choir
For many years, Parker partnered with Robert Shaw, considered to be the leading choral conductor of the 20th century, to create some of the classic arrangements of the choral repertoire. In recent years, Alice Parker has been honored with countless awards. At 91, Parker is one of the giants of the profession. Parker has been part of the Joyful Noise family since the beginning. She has written for them, and one of her original pieces, “All The Stars In the Sky,” is featured in the May
performance. Her talk will cover the genesis and development of Joyful Noise, writing for the group, and share her insights into making music with learner on all levels.
Co-sponsors: College of Arts and Sciences, "Join the Dialogue" Series, Department of Music, Department of Psychology and Cognitive Science Program.
