We present to you.... The Tang Readers Chorus!!!

Ian Byers-Gamber / Machine Project

After a whirlwind two week residency at Skidmore College and the Tang Museum, the 23 members of Liz Macy's gamelan class joined forces with the 5 members of the readers chorus workshop sessions to form TANG READERS CHORUS!!! We performed a program of 6 pieces, 4 of them brand new pieces written by students and 2 from Readers Chorus LA. 

Fall had arrived, and on this chilly night, we began the program outside with a brand new piece called "Politeness Counts," which was performed right next to its namesake- a shopping bag sculpture by Jonathan Seliger.

THANK YOU so much to everyone who participated in Tang Readers Chorus and to everyone who came out to watch us perform. It was a whole lot of fun and I hope that a Readers Chorus might continue at Skidmore!!!
