Boston Children's Chorus Launches Commissioning Project: Opus Nuovo

This past season, Boston Children's Chorus (BCC) launched an ongoing commissioning project, Opus Nuovo, as a commitment to a diverse and inclusive approach to choral programming. Through this innovation, we are seeking to broaden the landscape of the choral repertoire for both student and professional choirs. Over the next three years, our singers will collaborate with ten global composers to facilitate the creation of a collection of new choral works which, aligned with BCC’s vision of cultural equity, represent a truly diverse spectrum of global musical styles and approaches. In our 2020-2021 season, our upper choir singers worked with Jazzmeia Horn, Sydney Guillaume, and Layth Sidiq to produce three new works for the BCC Opus Nuovo composition initiative; Lower choir singers collaborated with composer Omar Shahryar in a student-led songwriting project.
