Two Bienen School choral ensembles join a public performance combining 1,000 voices from all 50 Chicago wards. Premiered by the Birmingham Contemporary Music Group in 2014, Lang’s crowd out was influenced by a wide variety of situations incorporating public singing and vocalizing, including the excitement of crowd sounds and chants at a football game. With performers and audience flowing into and out of each other, this unique work explores the role of the individual as part of a collective and the sense of community created through performance.
