Choral Music

Writing and performing choral music has been a part of Cheryl's music career since 1998 when she sang in the White House with The Greenwich Academy Madrigals. At Cornell University, Cheryl was the musical director and arranger for the oldest all-female acapella group Nothing But Treble. Currently, Cheryl participates as an original member of the non-profit choir Voices 21C with whom she has performed in France, Boston, and Israel. Voices 21C debuted her choral composition, "We", in Jerusalem in August 2017. Cheryl has also been a member of the Rob Mathes Christmas Choir for the past 9 years, sharing the stage with an all-star band, Vanessa Williams, and vocalist D-Train. In November of 2017, Cheryl performed on the Lincoln Center stage in New York City with Woodkid (and his choir and orchestra) for a gala at Alice Tully honoring Nicolas Ghesquière of Louis Vuitton.

SSATB score with soloist, rap, optional children's choir. The text is based on Dr. Martin Luther King Jr's speech "Break The Silence," when he spoke out against the Vietnam War. The music reflects the turbulence felt during that time, and the text connects it to today's social situations, suggesting that a first step is to find a way into the listening.

Difficulty: Medium to Hard. High School and up.

SSAATTB. Starting out dissonant and wandering, the music flows with the text to create a coming-together, as the chords start to emerge, so does the analogy. "For I am the other half of 'we'" is a great concept for social justice-themed concerts - no matter what sort of conflict we are in with someone else, we are in relationship and can start there.

Difficulty: Medium to Hard

SSATB. A short piece, good for transitions and openings. Using only vocal sounds that start closed ("oooh") and slowly open to "ah" then "hi" makes this piece an easy piece to memorize and play with.

Difficulty: Easy.
