Tenso Chamber Choir logoDuring the Tenso Conference on 23 and 24 January 2017 Rozalie Hirs is one of the panelists on a debate on words and music in choral art. Possible questions could include: which are the challenges a writer faces when his or her texts are – or would be – used in choral music? How can a composer treat texts in a setting for more voices?

The conference is organized by Tenso, the European network for professional choirs, in collaboration with Philharmonie de Paris. Paris, France, and Le Biennale d’Art Vocal. It is part of the project From Poetry to Music, initiated by Tenso in 2014.
