Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute invited Kennedy to create Paradio, a composition for four university choirs and radio soundtrack in 2011. The work involved 120 singers, moving as a choreographed parade through the city of Troy, N.Y., beginning at the Hudson River and climbing the hill into the performing arts center EMPAC. The composition examines the social history of that city through song and text.
