**”PREMIERE! A Massed Choir Event” is a COA original. Our Premiere! program gives you the opportunity to work with a known composer. During the event, participating choirs will sing for each other, talk about the creative process, and discuss the lyrics / poetry integral to the song, the music and everything else that went into the composition to be premiered. Then, in massed choir format, the participating choirs will rehearse the piece, followed by a World Premiere Recording Session. We are excited to announce that the COA Composer-in-Residence for this program will be Tesfa Wondemagegnehu.
