COMPANY OF HEAVEN
Museumstrasse 34, Top 28
Amina Claudine Myers presents in her music a unique blend of gospel, blues, jazz and "avantgardistic" melodies and rhythms. Maybe her incomparable feeling for music comes from her days as a child in the southern parts of the USA, where she heard Rhythm & Blues in the radio, gospel music in churches and Mozart's "Requiem" at school.
She is a member of the AACM (Association for the Advancement of Creative Musicians) since she came to New York City in 1976. Amina also wrote music for the stage and for chamber ensembles. Recently she started working with musicians from the Far East in NYC.
The Voice Choir was first formed in 1979 and Amina wrote several programs for it over the years.
The Voice Choir reflects her deep love for contemporary vocal music and represents best her abilities in writing polyphonic music for ensembles and choirs.
