New York-based C4, in collaboration with Austin-based chorus Inversion Ensemble, presents its sixth Remote Livestream concert of recent and newly-composed a cappella choral music. The performers, separated by hundreds of miles, will perform at the same time.

 
Our program will include the following pieces and a composer talkback. 
 
 
Germán Barboza, Blue (from Cromosaturación)
Misa Ogasawara, Snow
Christopher Fludd, Sunset from Watercolors, text by Jade Blocker

Last-minute changes are possible. YouTube live chat will be enabled.

It has been over a year since the award-winning C4 ensemble last sang in person, but when the pandemic hit its members wasted no time finding ways to perform live from the safety of their homes. Their first livestreamed choral program on YouTube was on April 23, 2020, and they have continued to perform together every couple of months since then. Their chosen repertoire for livestreaming takes advantage of the inherent time-lag of the medium while minimizing it and circumventing it in innovative ways. The members take turns at "semi-conducting", each from their own pinned window, in accordance with the group's management philosophy as a leaderless collective. 

C4's livestreams have earned special notice in Chorus America's The Voice magazine and in Eric Somers' "Audio Penguin" blog. Our first five live programs are archived here.

C4: The Choral Composer/Conductor Collective exists to enrich artists and audiences alike through passionate advocacy of new choral works: to perform pieces written within the last 25 years; to premiere in concert and commission new choral works; and to mentor emerging singers, composers, and conductors of today's choral music.
