Composer Tamara Cashour to be Interviewed Live, January 22 by Juhl Media on YouTube Program Includes World Premiere of Video for Forbearance, Performed by C4 Choral Composer Conductor Collective
Juhl Media will present Tamara in conversation with filmmaker Ching Juhl on Friday, January 22, @ 4 PM eastern time, live on Juhl Media's YouTube channel.

The program will include the World Premiere of the video for Ms. Cashour’s Forbearance for SATB chorus, human birdcallers and electronics, performed by C4: The Choral Composer Conductor Collective. The composer worked with C4 in the performance of the music and the creation of the video.

It will be archived on Juhl Media's YouTube channel and available for viewing after the live event.
The text for the piece is Ralph Waldo Emerson’s poem Forbearance, which is about nature and the often-selfish human need to make it ours. It is also about a desire to be more self-aware. Ms. Cashour and Ms. Juhl will also talk about the composer’s other works and the current state of classical music. They will be joined by C4’s Brian Mountford to talk about the video’s creative process.
 
The composer writes, “Forbearance is a socially conscious composition written along the lines of transcendentalist belief. It offers an active process of negation of the effects of climate change and species extinction in the Anthropocene (human) era." This video project was made possible via funding from the Bronx Council on the Arts.

About Tamara Cashour
Tamara Cashour is an award-winning ASCAP composer of chamber music (instrumental/vocal), choral ,music, musical theatre, opera, solo piano and organ music and theatre incidental music. Her awards include: Bronx BRIO award in musical composition, IAWM 2015 International Online Conference featured score, and 1st place in the feminist "For Women Only" composers competition, which featured her comic deconstructionist burlesque Girly Hurly Burly, for SSAA choral, set to the witches text from Shakespeare's Macbeth. Her tandem incidental pieces for SATB: Full Fathom Five and Fie On Sinful Fantasy, were featured in the theatre-opera production Bloody Fire, Unchaste Desire - a joint production of OperAvant and Lovestreet Theatre--for which Tamara served as musical director, pianist, conductor and featured soprano.

"Tamara Cashour’s Five Introits followed. Conceived for the brief, crucial and defining introductory moment of Protestant services that open the liturgy, these five extremely short works were jewels of effective musical writing: each work captured the essence of the sacred text coherently and immediately. As a Hart Longs was a paradigm of spiritual yearning; Be Strong and of Good Courage! was operatic in its noble vigor; O Sing Unto the Lord a New Song danced." --- Jean Ballard Terepka for Theatrescene
Tamara Cashour holds a BA in Music Theory/Columbia University; MA in Interdisciplinary Studies (Musical Direction/Avant-garde theatre studies); and MFA in Musical Composition from Vermont College of Fine Arts.
