Curated by renowned violinist and composer Nokuthula Ngwenyama, exclusively for ASU Kerr, “Composers’ Choice” stands as the sole annual program in Phoenix dedicated entirely to contemporary composers.

Apryl Allen, a multifaceted artist excelling as a composer, author, playwright, Comanche storyteller, vocalist, songwriter, actor and musician, will be joined by the Phoenix Boys Choir. Together, they will provide a tantalizing preview of her expansive Comanche stage musical “ShapeShifter.” Ngwenyama has artfully arranged and scored the musical, with melodies, music, lyrics and the book composed by Allen.

Prepare to be captivated by riveting performances and gain insightful glimpses into the lives of these creative composers!
