  • Description

    The Unarmed Child by composer Michael Bussewitz-Quarm is a gorgeous, riveting, deeply moving and important work that is thoroughly accessible at the very first listening. Composed in response to gun violence against children, the work sensitively navigates this difficult, heart-wrenching subject with beautiful, poignant, healing words and music. Each movement deals with a different aspect of emotion in a uniquely expressive way. One cannot get through the experience without tears. But the vibrant final movement releases the audience and performers with an energized call to action that is infused with hope. - Dr. Diane Retallack, Artistic Director, Eugene Concert Choir.
