2. Folk interpretations of music from different genres and time periods
Background We met in the voice studio of Katherine Rohrer in Columbus, Ohio. Brennan asked Sam to narrate his Choral Conducting master's recital. This recital was focused around storytelling and included instrumental and poetry aspects beyond a typical choral outing. From this, our collaboration was born. We both come from musical backgrounds. Sam has a BM in music education and a MM in vocal performance while Brennan has BA in liberal arts and an MM in choral conducting. Through this recital, we discovered that we both crave a deeper and more elemental connection to music. While we originally only intended to do a little holiday gigging, our passion for this project has grown. Part of the uniqueness of our collaboration is that we create folk-like arrangements of music from many different genres. This allows us to reach audiences from different backgrounds and create connections across generational lines.
