Call AcrossKyle Pederson - Hal Leonard Corporation
This eight-minute journey around the world will take you from the kulokk calls of Norway to the bira ceremonies of Zimbabwe. This powerful and inspirational work with lyrics by Brian Newhouse in English and Shona reaches across cultures, ages, and geography. Premiered by Conspirare at the 2021 ACDA National Conference, this selection includes solos and optional handpan with a modern world beat and gives each section a chance to shine. It was the winner of the 2021 ACDA Genesis Prize, which was created as a response to the difficult times facing our world, and the choral arts in particular, and rewards pieces that speak to our time with voices of comfort, hope, peace, and justice.
