Chaski and Psophonia Dance Company are presenting The Book of Goddesses in Music and Dance - taken from Grammy® nominated composer Robert Paterson’s chamber work The Book of Goddesses (2010) with live music and modern dance as envisioned by the composer. The synergy of the collaboration stems from The Book of Goddesses by author Kris Waldherr. The performances bring together three musicians, one composer, one choreographer, and ten dancers from across Texas to embark on the journey of divine femininity. Paterson's musical composition sprang from this beautifully illustrated book that highlights different goddesses from various cultures covering Greek mythology Tibetan folklore and Japanese legend. Named after the book, The Book of Goddesses was on the Grammy® nomination ballot for Best Contemporary Classical Composition and was named one of the Top 10 favorite pieces of the year by NPR’s Best Music of 2012.

Paterson has graciously given permission to have the work reproduced for this project. In conversations with the composer, he shared his original vision for the piece, which was that the music be performed live with choreographed dance.

After many years of music study Dr. Shana Mashego, Soprano, desired to develop a classical worship concept which encompasses the performance and preservation of the Christian hymn. Hence, The Hymn Project was born. The Hymn Project includes traditional Christian hymns set for soprano and various string orchestrations including but not limited to settings for soprano and string quartet as well as settings for soprano and full piano quintet. The concept of this project was joyfully accepted by Dr. Mashego's friends of many years who serve the group in various capacities including Mr. Christopher Hanson, first violinist and orchestral arranger, Mr. Gary Mitchell, pianist and arranger, Mr. Jose Pecina, second violinist, Mr. Frederick McBride, violist and Mr. Kareem Goode, cellist. It is the hope of Dr. Mashego that this concept grows into a worldwide revival of the Christian hymn.
