Premiered by the San Francisco Chamber Orchestra, Benjamin Simon, conductor, Volti, Robert Geary, director, and Piedmont Children’s Choir, Eric Tuan, director.
Denial draws on the words of both poets and flat-Earth theorists (science deniers of an earlier era) to explore the human flaws behind one of humanity’s collective disasters—climate change. Denial was commissioned for the San Francisco Chamber Orchestra, Volti, and the Piedmont East Bay Children's Choirs by the BMI Foundation and the SFCO, with additional support from the National Endowment for the Arts. Premiered at the Herbst Theater, San Francisco, April, 2022.
