Joel Puckett will compose a piece for The Crossing

Music Theory faculty member Joel Puckett has been commissioned by The Crossing to compose a 15 minute unaccompanied work for 24-voice chamber choir. The Philadelphia based choral ensemble has been awarded the 2013 Dale Warland Singers Commission Award, created to recognize a chorus entering into a partnership with a composer of their choice, to contribute a new work to the choral repertoire. The award is presented by Chorus America, in partnership with the American Composers Forum, and will be presented at Chorus America’s National Convention in Seattle on June 13. Puckett’s new work will be a main feature of the Month of Moderns Festival in Philadelphia during the summer of 2015.
