Kelly Hall-Tompkins by Gregory Routt
Forgotten Voices is a composite song cycle with music by 15 award-winning composers set to incidental texts by homeless-shelter clients. Commissioned by Music Kitchen–Food for the Soul—a pioneering organization that brings classical music concerts to the homeless nationwide—in celebration of its 15th season, the cycle comprises songs that were premiered in shelters each month since the beginning of 2019. Composers include Courtney Bryan, Jon Grier, Kelly Hall-Tompkins, Gabriel Kahane, James Lee III, Tania León, Beata Moon, Paul Moravec, Angélica Negrón, Kevin Puts, Steve Sandberg, Jeff Scott, Carlos Simon, Errollyn Wallen, and Ellen Taaffe Zwilich. Performed by an ensemble of outstanding musicians, the evening concludes with a question-and-answer session moderated by NBC News’ Harry Smith.
