The Vicksburg Project
PREMIERE: Coming Fall 2017
Karen Kandel – Conception / Lyrics
Eve Beglarian – Conception / Composer
“The Vicksburg Project” will be a staged song cycle of twelve interlocked songs that trace women’s experiences in Vicksburg Mississippi in four different eras: the Civil War 1860s, the Jim Crow/Great Migration 1910s, the Civil Rights 1960s, and the current decade.
The hope is to present the final piece in New York as well as in Vicksburg, Mississippi (and other towns in the deep south) and other urban centers around the country.
Vicksburg Project was supported by New Music USA. To follow the project as it unfolds, visit my project page.
