The Bang on a Can All-Stars and Houston Chamber Choir present: Julia Wolfe’s Anthracite Fields is a lovingly detailed oratorio with original video about turn-of-the-20th-century Pennsylvania coal miners, awarded the 2015 Pulitzer Prize for Music. This haunting, timely work draws on oral histories, interviews, speeches, geographic descriptions, children’s rhymes, and coal advertisements to provide an intimate look at a particular slice of American life. The always-adventurous Bang on a Can All-Stars join Da Camera’s frequent artistic collaborators from Houston Chamber Choir.
