Elisabeth Halliday and Zach Herchen have created the Emerging Voices Project to commission, perform, and record music for voice and saxophone. The project was inspired by Lori Laitman's "I Never Saw Another Butterfly," a musical setting of poetry written by Jewish children who lived in the concentration camp Theresienstadt. Elisabeth and Zach selected composers Kathleen Bader, Adam Knauss, and George Lam to write pieces based on the themes of childhood and loss of innocence. They premiered the works in recital throughout 2011 and the CD was recently released (purchase).
