Raven Chacon is a composer, performer, and installation artist from Fort Defiance, Navajo Nation. In May, Chacon became the first Native American to win the Pulitzer Prize for music. In its note on the award, the Pulitzer jury called Voiceless Mass a “mesmerizing, original work … that evokes the weight of history in a church setting, a concentrated and powerful music expression with a haunting, visceral impact.” Hear an exclusive performance of Voiceless Mass and a conversation with the composer hosted by George Preston.
