Together, Apart: Awake With Heart
Sunday, October 25, 7:00 pm (LIVE on Youtube)
Ars Nova Singers presents our Fall Concert live from Broomfield Auditorium, streamed on our Youtube channel.
Artistic Director Thomas Edward Morgan has chosen a program that honors American Democracy and speaks to Ars Nova Singers’ commitment to re-evaluating our core repertoire and ensuring that it amplifies the voices of Black composers and other composers of color, both historical and living. We recognize that to make a true difference requires ongoing attention; this concert will be one of many in which we feature composers of color.
We are also pleased to be presenting works by composer George Lynn, who served on the faculty at CU College of Music in the 1950s and whose full body of manuscripts now resides at CU at the American Music Research Center.
The concert, titled “Together, Apart: Awake With Heart” is a hybrid performance of being together while being apart – a combination of octets recorded separately and coming together in the livestream. We look forward to seeing you on Sunday, October 25. Tune in at 7:00 pm, or enjoy the performance later.

Black Lives Matter.
Ars Nova Singers firmly opposes discrimination of every kind and the hatred and brutality that result from it. We stand compassionately for people of color and abhor the intolerable cruelty, bias, and bigotry they have endured through this nation’s persistent systemic racism. We raise our voices in unity with the expanding worldwide chorus against racism in all its forms. We recognize that institutions and ensembles of classical music like Ars Nova can do more to fight racism than they have in the past. We are committed to re-evaluating our core repertoire and ensuring that it amplifies the voices of Black composers and other composers of color, both historical and living. We are also actively pursuing collaborations with local performers and artists who reflect the diversity of our Colorado community.
