Tell The Way
is a newly commissioned collaborative work created for the Brooklyn Youth
Chorus (Dianne Berkun, Artistic Director) by the ubiquitous Nico Muhly. Loosely based on medieval and colonial
English travel narratives, the work draws from American folk sources, prayers
for the Royal Navy, early colonial diaries, Mandeville, Herodotus and Marco
Polo. Nico Muhly’s music is propulsive
travel-music, but at the heart of Tell
The Way are three meditative collaborations between Muhly and Bishi, Muhly
and Bryce Dessner and Muhly and Sam Amidon. The American Contemporary Music Ensemble (ACME) augments the voices of the Brooklyn Youth Chorus, Bryce's
guitar, Sam's banjo and fiddle, and Bishi's sitar.
Co-produced by Beth Morrison Projects
Tell the Way was commissioned and developed by the Brooklyn Youth Chorus with funds from Meet the Composer and the Educational Foundation of America.
