Social Distance-SING: CBC Composer Chats
In March and April, members of the Chattanooga Boys Choir "met" with twelve composers on Zoom to talk about music the choristers were preparing in the spring. Choristers asked questions to learn about the inspiration for those particular pieces, as well as to learn more about the composer - how many pieces have they written, why did they choose to become a composer, what did they study. We are grateful for the time these composers spent with our choristers!
