The Unarmed Child will be written to bring attention to one of the most significant and challenging issues in our country today, gun violence. This crisis has devastated many families and many communities.
As of 1/14/19, three choirs have commissioned movements, and four choirs are reviewing proposals with their leadership teams. Two of the five choirs are considering forming a consortium of choirs within their state to commission the movement. Each choir joining will have the rights to their state’s premiere of either the song they commission or the entire The Unarmed Child.
