Commissioning Creativity: SHS Chamber Choir World Premiere a New Choral Work

The Saline High School Chamber Choir plans to commission a piece from Connor Koppin, an award-winning and nationally recognized composer of new choral music. Students will go beyond their normal practice of simply learning a piece by being a part of the creative process from the very start. This grant will include the commissioned work itself, visits from Mr. Koppin who is currently doing his DMA at MSU, and a unique collaborative experience for our students to be the very first voices to share a piece of new art. The final published score will include a dedication to Saline Choirs, and we hope it will carry our name beyond Saline to performers and audiences around the world.
