Chamber Music Series

“The Agitators” by Laura Caviani

On May 20, 2022, The Carleton Choir and Jazz Ensemble will premiere a new work by Laura Caviani, Director of Jazz Area and Senior Lecturer at Carleton College. The work is entitled: “The Agitators”, and was commissioned by the College’s Choir, under the direction of Matthew Olson. A year in the making, this 40­–minute work sets to music the inspiring words of historically significant social activists from our country’s past: Fredrick Douglass, Susan B. Anthony, Sojourner Truth, Emma Lazarus, and Carleton’s’ own Paul Wellstone, who was also a United States Senator for Minnesota.

 

The Agitators will feature the Carleton Choir, the Jazz Ensemble, Scattitude Vocal Jazz Group, and the Saxophone Quintet JazzAx. Guest singers Judi Vinar and George Philip Shoultz will join the students, as will guest brass players Jeff Rinear, and Carson King–Fournier. King–Fournier is on faculty in Carleton’s Music Department.

 

The performance begins at 7:30 p.m. in Kracum Performance Hall in the Weitz Center for Creativity on Carleton’s campus, and will last approximately an hour. It is free to the general public.

 

It will also be live–streamed, and can be seen by simply logging into the home page of Carleton’s Music Department here:
