Requiem for Rice 2017: Staging of Unburied, Unmourned, Unamarked
Thu 9/21 7:00PM - 10:00PM


‘Unburied, Unmourned, Unmarked’ is inspired by the history of African and African American forced laborers who cultivated rice in the Lowcountry. Colour of Music Festival commissioned Dr. Trevor Weston to compose ‘Unburied, Unmourned, Unmarked’.  This piece for string orchestra takes inspiration from traditional African music and traditional folk music by African Americans: fiddle music, long-meter hymns and Gullah music. The string
work will eventually become a longer dramatic work for voices and full orchestra, Requiem for Rice.  

Thursday, September 21, 2017- staging of ‘Unburied’, ‘Unmourned’, and ‘Unmarked’ played by string ensemble, a dramatic reading of excerpts from the Requiem libretto by VANESSA GERMAN, and discussion of the score (in development) and libretto by Drs. Trevor Weston, composer, and Edda L. Fields-Black, librettist (7pm at Carnegie Mellon University Mellon Institute Auditorium, 4400 Fifth Avenue, Pittsburgh, PA 15213).
