NPR's "Here & Now" features Margaret Brouwer's "Voice of the Lake"
It may be hard to imagine a composer being inspired by public hearings and court cases. But Lake Erie and its problems take center stage in a new oratorio from Cleveland composer Margaret Brouwer.
Elizabeth Miller (@llmiller12) of Great Lakes Today has more on the piece and its recent premiere.
Great Lakes Today is a collaboration of WBFO in Buffalo, New York, WCPN Ideastream in Cleveland and WXXI in Rochester, New York.
