Artist-in-Residence Workshop: Trigger
Byron Au Yong and librettist Aaron Jafferis will lead a public workshop and discussion on his oratorio project Trigger. The "Music and Trauma" Ensemble will perform excerpts of the work.
Trigger is a choral initiative prompted by the April 16th Tragedy at Virginia Tech, where a Korean-American student shot 49 people, killing 32, then himself. College students, faculty, staff, and local leaders form the backbone of this performance where mental health, music, neuroscience, sociology, and theatre intersect. Developmental residencies culminate in performances and events leading up to the 10-year memorial in April 2017.
