Virginia Women’s Chorus Bicentennial Commission

The Virginia Women’s Chorus will commission a piece of original choral music composed by renowned composer, Ola Gjeilo. The mission is to commission a piece that will simultaneously celebrate the University’s Bicentennial and the history of women at the University. Debuting for the University’s Bicentennial in 2019, this piece will become a part of UVA tradition, to be sung by generations of students. With this commission, the Chorus hopes to not only add to UVA’s vibrant choral repertoire, but also to give current and future female students the opportunity to participate more substantively in the University’s musical tradition.
