In its 15th season, Vanguard Voices reaches out to embrace American and international choral works in two major performances, in December and June. The 65-voice mixed choir will combine with the Dearborn Community Chorus in Conrad Susa’s arrangement of ten carols from several Spanish-speaking regions of the world. Carols and Lullabies: Christmas in the Southwest will lead a program that also will include carols familiar to Americans, but performed in their original languages.

Vanguard Voices will join the Archdiocesan Chorus and the Wayne State University Symphonic Chorus in a Festival of American Choral Music at the Cathedral of the Most Blessed Sacrament in Detroit in mid-February. The three choirs will combine to perform Samuel Adler’s Transfiguration: An Ecumenical Mass under the baton of Detroit Symphony Civic Orchestra conductor Charles Burke, after having had the honor of rehearsing the work in the presence of Adler himself.

The season will conclude in June with the world premiere performance of the two winners of this year’s Vanguard Premieres choral composition contest. Kansas-based composer Dan Forrest, whose A Basque Lullaby earned an honorable mention in the 2004 competition, is this year’s emerging composer winner with his You Are The Music. Guy Forbes of Decatur, Illinois, is the winner of the general category with his O Nata Lux. Several honorable mention compositions, from three countries, will round out a memorable performance.
