More about the composer



Program note

Sameer Dahar is a young, autistic man who is primarily non-verbal, but communicates by pointing to letters on a board in a process called the Rapid Prompting Method. Using this method, Sameer created beautiful poems that inspired composer Juliana Hall to create a song cycle for tenor and piano based on Sameer's work. The texts of these songs possess mystery and deeply beautiful images, as imagined through Sameer's experience of living with autism.
