    Brickyard Broadcast for NCSU Choirs and Orchestra
    Lisa Bielawa, Composer/Producer

    The Department of Music presents the NC State orchestras and choirs with the Concert Singers of Cary, performing the world premiere of a new work by composer Lisa Bielawa entirely in virtual reality (VR) on a digital Brickyard built by the NC State University Libraries.

    On premiere night, join Department of Music faculty Peter Askim, director of orchestral studies, and Nathan Leaf, director of choral activities, and composer Lisa Bielawa for a live, online panel discussion. You’ll then enter the VR Brickyard to experience the world premiere of Brickyard Broadcast, performed by the NC State orchestras (Raleigh Civic Symphony and Raleigh Civic Chamber Orchestra), the NC State choirs (State Chorale, Vox Accalia and Singing Statesmen), and the Concert Singers of Cary.

    Following your experience of the performance, join Askim, Leaf and Bielawa again for a question and answer session.

    The link to join the live premiere event will be available at on Nov. 12 at 6 PM ET. Can’t join us live? You can still experience the VR performance by visiting that link after Nov. 12.  More details
