Belonging: A Carillon Call to Care for All
Earth Blood Reprise
The Voice of Weeping
Belonging: A Carillon Call to Care for All commenced as an artist's response to the hate speech and actions that permeate the news in our time. In Belonging, I interviewed many beautiful, generous, articulate people, who bravely spoke of personal joys and struggles, the strangle-hold of prejudice, and the powerful work they do to honor their heritage and to promote peace and understanding among all people.
Through the carillon music of Belonging: A Carillon Call to Care for All, I seek to welcome, respect, listen to, and honor individuals and communities from Arab and Muslim, African American, Jewish, and Latina/o cultures and all global citizens (these four pieces are the first of many more that could follow). The carillon pieces are programmatic in that each piece tells a story. They may be performed singly or as a set.
