A Year In the Making: "Tse Go La" by Andrea Clearfield

Tse Go La, the new cantata composed by Andrea Clearfield, means At The Threshold of This Life in Nepali. 

In the fall of 2008 and summer of 2012, Andrea explored the restricted Himalayan region of Lo Monthang in Upper Mustang, Nepal, while studying the traditions of Tibetan music—all of which inspired Tse Go La. Commissioned by the Mendelssohn Club of Philadelphia and the Philadelphia Girlchoir, Tse Go La premiered with 200 singers and the Chamber Orchestra of Philadelphia at Church of the Holy Trinity on April 28, 2012.

Andrea talks about Tse Go La in the video below.
