The New Music Ensemble at Grand Valley State University takes inspiration from U.S. national parks on its fifth commercial recording, "Dawn Chorus." In the ongoing project the ensemble has commissioned over 20 composers to explore and “respond” to these incredible American treasures. The album features 11 new works by composers who visited the likes of Arches, Badlands, Grand Teton, and Yellowstone national parks. The ensemble has performed this music in the lands that inspired it on three national tours, with a fourth (and brand new commissions) planned for summer 2020.
Release date: April 24, 2020
