Help Compose Our Next Commission


We are excited to announce a special commission that we will premiere at a to-be-scheduled upcoming concert. This unique, “crowd-sourced” commission by local composer Jonathan Kolm is entitled Refuge, and you get to participate in the composition process!

The winning text of Round Four was "A Litany for Survival" by Audre Lorde. Stay tuned for the winning text, announced soon!

Voting for the fifth and final round, also titled "Refuge", ended on March 17. Watch the above video to hear ACS members recite the text options and stay tuned for the winning text!

The three text options are “Space” by Amanda Kay Williams, “The Winds of Fate” by Ella Wheeler Wilcox, and “Running Back to Sanctuary” by
L G Mace.

We are so looking forward to presenting this one-of-a-kind piece, and we hope you will cast your votes and join us on this journey!
