Dancing in the Ghetto was premiered by the Birmingham Contemporary Music Group in 2008. At that time I felt that the piece needed to be expanded, and much of the material found its way into my opera Anya17 a few years later. This four minute sometimes folkloristic blast for large chamber ensemble attempts to conjure up a spirit of wild joy under the threat of catastrophe.
