The State of Choral Music in an American Idol Age with members of Octarium 

When: Fri., March 2, 6:30 p.m. 2012
Price: free
As "farm to table" has entered the language as a dining aspiration, so "pen to concert hall" is one way to describe what the local-centric music group Octarium means to achieve. The eight-person vocal ensemble promotes its new music as fresh sounds produced in listeners' backyards. The group has commissioned unaccompanied choral works from homegrown composers, and today composers and the group's artistic director talk about "The State of Choral Music in an American Idol Age" to shed light on what they call the "art-local process." The panel discussion begins at 6:30 p.m. at the Kansas City Central Library (14 West 10th Street, 816-701-3400).
