SYNOPSIS

Zachary Wadsworth’s “vivid, vital, and prismatic” music has established him as a leading composer of his generation. Praised for its “evocative mixture of old and new,” his music has been heard in venues around the world, from the Kennedy Center in Washington to Westminster Abbey in the presence of Queen Elizabeth II. His first work for Chor Leoni as Composer-in-Residence, When There Is Peace: An Armistice Oratorio, resulted in Chor Leoni’s first JUNO nomination and we’ve loved everything he’s written for us since. Catch up with this award-winning composer on this episode of Chor Leoni Inside.

You’ll enjoy Chor Leoni performances of two of Zach’s works, To One Dead and To the End, as well as Come to the Road (sung by the National Youth Choir of Canada), and Spine and Shadow, performed at Trinity Wall Street in New York City by Downtown Voices.
