LYNX Project Amplify Series: 20-21 Premieres Concert

Thursday, April 22, 2021 @ 7:00 pm - 8:00 pm CDT

The Lynx Project

LYNX’s Amplify Series sets the poetry and prose of neurodivergent individuals to music as contemporary classical song. Amplify advocates for the voices of neurodivergent individuals, and adds important new repertoire to this classical vocal music genre. The LYNX Project is a nonprofit art song organization that celebrates diverse voices through newly commissioned song and connects communities through inclusive concerts and innovative educational programming.

This Amplify Series 20-21 Premieres virtual concert will be streamed on the Groupmuse website as part of the This Week from Guarneri Hall series, and tickets are available through Groupmuse ($3 to reserve, $15 at the event).

Writers whose poetry and prose is featured in this year’s musical commissions are Aiden Levy, Pablo Hernandez, Mitchell Robins, and Benjamin Smidt. These young writers are primarily non-speaking and use alternative methods of communication, including letterboarding.

The songs that feature their words include new commissions by Chicago composers Nico Gutierrez, Michelle Isaac, Liza Sobel, Pierce Gradone, and Mike McFerron, and are performed by soprano Kristina Bachrach, mezzo soprano Leah Dexter, baritone Nicholas Ward, and pianist Daniel Baer.
