The Brooklyn Youth Chorus writes of this new release: "The Silent Voices project began during the Brooklyn Youth Chorus’s 25th anniversary season, born out of the desire to create music that was both topically relevant to our own choristers, and to the time and place in which we live. In exploring a broad range of issues and topics, we felt it was important for our young people to use their voices to uplift others—to give voice to those who have been silenced or marginalized in our communities. As the Chorus has always used its collective voice in the service of art, we were eager for this opportunity to create an original music project that allowed our young singers to serve as instruments of change. In speaking up and speaking out, carrying the music and message of diverse composers, artists, and writers, including our own choristers, we have learned so much about ourselves and our role and responsibilities in the world. Imbalances in power and privilege extend across boundaries of race, gender, class and country, and affect each of us in our own personal way. We hope our listeners will enjoy this collection of songs, stories, and voices, and join us in empowering our youth to build a brighter future."
