Creation Multimedia Oratorio
Before Libertaria, there was the Creation:
A complex multilingual intertwining of Afro-Cuban music and traditional choral music, the intermedia oratorio Creation celebrates diversity and the beauty of procreation. A celebration of culture, life, humanity, and the female body, Creation further marks itself as a musical milestone, commissioned specifically for a 60 member woman’s chorus and composed by a young female composer of Cuban-Dominican heritage.
Premier performance by the Millikin State University Women’s Choir directed by Michael Engelhardt and accompanied by the Millikin University Percussion Ensemble, directed by Brian Justison.
Commissioned by the Millikin State University Women’s Choir and partially funded by the Kentucky Foundation for Women Artist Enrichment Grant.
