Voters' Broadcast

Wednesday | October 14 2020 | 3 pm


FREE Online Performance streamed live here and on Kaufman Music Center's Facebook page.

This virtual performance hosted by the University of Michigan in Ann Arbor features its students along with high school students from Kaufman Music Center’s Special Music School.

Voters’ Broadcast is a transformative and broadly participatory musical performance for flexible ensembles of musicians. The work is directed, conceived and composed by Rome Prize and American Academy of Arts & Letters Award-winner, composer and 2020-21 Kaufman Music Center Artist-in-Residence Lisa Bielawa, with text taken from celebrated artist Sheryl Oring’s I Wish to Say. Bielawa’s mission with Voters’ Broadcast is to stimulate voter engagement and community participation in our current challenging lockdown conditions, through performing and voting, during the lead-up to the 2020 Presidential election. 

Bielawa says, “The project is poised to energize and inspire people in a unique way, inciting them to think, to vote, to consider their relationships to their political leaders and to each other. It is designed to deliver equal parts beauty and mobilization.”
