The May Festival’s “25 for 25” Premieres Works by Luna Lab Alumni

Luna Lab’s largest commissioning initiative to date, The May Festival’s 25 for 25: A New Time for Choral Music, has commissioned 25 alumni of the fellowship program for this project that honors the May Festival’s storied history of commissioning new works and celebrates their 150th Anniversary Season.

The new choral works written by Luna Lab alumni will be premiered by Greater Cincinnati choral ensembles in a community showcase March 19, 2023, and at several other local performances throughout the spring.

Learn more about the project and read this preview in the Cincinnati Business Courier.
