Chandler Carter’s works—which include over 50 songs, choral, chamber and orchestral works and three operas—have been performed throughout the United States and in Canada and Europe by numerous distinguished recitalists and ensembles. He has received several awards, including two grants from the National Endowment for the Arts. Carter is one of a select few composers to have two operas, Strange Fruit (2003) and No Easy Walk to Freedom (2009), selected by New York City Opera for its annual VOX showcase of new works. Carter’s most recent staged work, the one-act monodrama Mercury Falling, was presented at the 2009 Long Leaf Opera summer festival. According to a reviewer, this work “only strengthens his reputation as an inspired musician.” Carter’s music has been performed and programmed by numerous groups, including the Da Capo Chamber Players, the Quintet of the Americas, the Latin American Wind Quintet, Denver Chamber Orchestra and the Westchester Philharmonic, amongst others. Notable choruses, including the Riverside Choir in NYC, regularly perform his original choral music and arrangements. |
