According to the New York Times, "The concerts have an air of authenticity and directness that sometimes does not exist in concert halls." Forgotten Voices is a song cycle commissioned by Music Kitchen - Food for the Soul, with support from Carnegie Hall, comprising works by 15 of today's foremost composers featuring evocative and poignant texts by homeless shelter clients that have provided a profound source of inspiration and reverence.
