Composer Anthony R. Green in Gettysburg



In this Big Blend Radio conversation, social justice composer and performer Anthony R. Green discusses his music and National Parks Arts Foundation (NPAF) residency at Gettysburg National Military Park. Tanya Ortega, photographer and founder of NPAF, also joins in the discussion and talks about the various NPAF artist residencies in National Park units such as Gettysburg, Hawaii Volcanoes, Chaco Canyon, Death Valley and Dry Tortugas.

The creative output of Anthony R. Green includes musical and visual creations, interpretations of original works or works in the repertoire, collaborations, educational outreach, and more. Behind all of his artistic endeavors are the ideals of equality and freedom, which manifest themselves in diverse ways in a composition, a performance, a collaboration, or social justice work. Watch Anthony perform Kid Gunner Brother (solo version, 2019) by Darian Donovan Thomas, here:

Gettysburg National Military Park preserves, protects and interprets for this and future generations the resources associated with the 1863 Battle of Gettysburg, during the American Civil War, the Soldiers’ National Cemetery, and their commemorations.

The National Parks Arts Foundation is a 501(c)3 non-profit dedicated to the arts of the National Parks through creating dynamic opportunities for artworks that are based on our natural and historic heritage. NPAF selects any sort of artist for national park residencies, from traditional landscape painters, photographers, to performers, installations, films/video, as well as writers, poets, sound artists, and new arts media. All NPAF programs are made possible through the philanthropic support of donors of all sorts ranging from corporate sponsors, small businesses, and art patrons and citizen-lovers of the parks.
