VOCALESSENCE TO PRESENT WILLIAM BOLCOM’S SONGS OF INNOCENCE AND OF EXPERIENCE AS PART OF 2006-2007 SEASON

Minneapolis Performances Part of a Two-Week Festival on Bolcom in April 2007

The Star Tribune of Minneapolis-St. Paul reported on Sunday that Vocal Essence, the Minneapolis-based choral arts organization led by Philip Brunelle, will present two performances of William Bolcom’s Songs of Innocence and of Experience as part of Illuminating Bolcom, a two-week festival celebrating the composer’s work that will run from April 21st-May 5th, 2007.  The performances of Songs of Innocence and of Experience are expected to be highlights of the 2006-2007 Vocal Essence season and will take place on April 28th and 29th, 2007 in Orchestra Hall. 

In February, Songs of Innocence and of Experience, recorded on Naxos, received three GRAMMY Awards: Best Classical Album (awarded to the performers and producer), Best Choral Performance (awarded to the choral directors and orchestral conductor), and Best Classical Contemporary Composition (awarded to the composer).  The performances in Minneapolis will be the first scheduled since the GRAMMYs.
