Further Development

In November 2020, the Performing Pindar project developed into 'Old Victories, New Voices': an online lecture-concert, led by Nancy Felson and performed by the Live Canon Ensemble. It features new music by composer Alex Silverman and lyricist Helen Eastman, and collaboration with drummer, Barbara Allen. It can be viewed on Live Canon's YouTube channel:
