Eriks Ensenvalds has become a staple composer for choral perfromances at many national and international conferences. I first came across “Northern Lights” at the ACDA National Conference in Dallas, TX. Commissioned for and performed by the Choir of the West, Pacific Lutheran University, this work is accompanied by an unconventional instrument, water-tuned glasses. I have not programmed much of Ensenvalds’ music yet, but this young composer has incredible talent.
