The Cherokee Chamber Singers perform “Si Otsedoha (We’re Still Here)” by William Brittelle.
In 2017, Cherokee student leaders assembled a forum for open discussion on what it means for them to be Cherokee in the past, present, and future and how they view their cultural heritage. This new work was created with the words, voices, and vision of the Cherokee Chamber Singers, choral students at Cherokee Central Schools, written by composer William Brittelle. Originally commissioned by the North Carolina Symphony, the BMCM+AC event will include a pre-concert discussion and performance with the Cherokee Singers and music director / pianist Michael Yannette.
