UCSC Concert Choir presents what I said/can’t say/didn’t say/am saying/never said, including choral music by minimalists, and a world premiere of a new work by Jenny Olivia Johnson.

The spring production, directed by Nathaniel Berman, features the choral set entitledThree Songs, by Philip Glass, and selections from William Duckworth’s Southern Harmony, which deconstruct and meditate upon shape-note hymns. 

In addition, this event is a world premiere of what I said/can’t say/didn’t say/am saying/never said, a commissioned new work by Boston-based composer and sound artist Jenny Olivia Johnson, for choir (amplified with reverb), piano (amplified with digital delay), and choir/audience members’ smartphones, with internet access.
