Harvard Glee Club and Radcliffe Choral Society premiere “Winter Songs” at holiday concert

From the Harvard Gazette:
“The Harvard Glee Club and Radcliffe Choral Society’s holiday gift came early this year, in the form of a newly commissioned piece of classical music from alumnus Paul Moravec ’79.

Moravec, the winner of the 2004 Pulitzer Prize for music who served as assistant conductor of the Harvard-Radcliffe Collegium Musicum while an undergraduate, composed for the choruses “Winter Songs,” a three-movement work setting poems by Emily Dickinson, Robert Burns, and William Shakespeare. “Winter Songs” premiered at the annual community holiday concert on Dec. 2 in Sanders Theatre.

“Having written this new piece with the Harvard Glee Club and the Radcliffe Choral Society, I’ve come home,” he said.”
