The Pied Pipers of Clean Water is a partnership with Water Aid USA and focuses on clean water and sanitation across the globe as well as on Water Aid’s Female Plumbers Program. The program includes The Moldau from Smetana’s Ma Vlast followed by music by female composers including: By the Still Waters by Amy Beach, Troubled Water by Margaret Bonds, Water Sprites by Cecile Chaminade and Rebecca Clarke’s To an Isle in the water.
In addition, we are commissioning a new work by living American female composer Bethany Trainor to be paired with a new film from Water Aid about the Female Plumber’s Project. This work is scored for trio and an electronic running water effect that will play simultaneously with the music. In addition, we will host a photo exhibit of images from called Water for Empowerment based on Water Aid’s case studies.
