New Classical Featured Artist – 11/08/21 – 11/21/21
America has always been a mosaic of cultures dating back thousands of years to the original inhabitants of the land. In 1990, November was established as National Native American Heritage Month, which helps celebrate these multi-cultural heritages. This week on Classical Music Indy Streaming’s New Classical channel, we feature music by Jerod Impichchaachaaha’ Tate, a citizen of the Chickasaw Nation.
Tate has held numerous Composer-in-Residence positions and his commissioned works have been performed by the National Symphony Orchestra, San Francisco Symphony and Chorus, Dallas Symphony Orchestra, Buffalo Philharmonic Orchestra, Detroit Symphony Orchestra, Minnesota Orchestra, South Dakota Symphony Orchestra, and many more. He has a long list of accolades from being a three-time commissioned recipient from the American Composers Forum, a Chamber Music America’s Classical Commissioning Program recipient, a Cleveland Institute of Music Alumni Achievement Award recipient, a governor-appointed Creativity Ambassador for the State of Oklahoma, and even an Emmy Award winner for his work on the Oklahoma Educational Television Authority documentary, The Science of Composing. We’ll hear Jerod talk about his life, career, and music during this playlist.
