Giving Voice Chorus – Minneapolis

In 2018, Giving Voice mounted a performance of Love Never Forgets, a cycle of nine songs illuminating the experience of living with Alzheimer’s composed by Victor Zupanc and Louisa Castner, derived from multiple interviews with chorus members. The project, which was a collaboration between Giving Voice, the American Composers Forum, and the MacPhail Center for Music, is believed to be the first choral work about Alzheimer’s that was performed by people living with the disease. Learning and presenting a brand new work represented a major stretch for those singers—who typically perform songs that they remember from their younger years—and raised audience members’ awareness of the musical contributions that those living with Alzheimer’s are capable of making.
If you weren’t able to hear the world premiere last June, join the choir for this reprise of some of the beautiful songs created from this collaboration.
