Performing Arts Series: New Voices: Earthquakes and Islands
September 30, 2017 (7:30 pm)
Location: Festival Theatre
New Voices: Earthquakes and Islands is an ambitious song cycle, that will take the poetry of Robin Richardson, whose work is rooted in contemporary critical issues facing us today, in combination with the lyrical, forceful, moving musical landscape of Newfoundland-based composer Andrew Staniland. Robin Richardson’s own artwork will illustrate the score and projected animations based on the artwork created by animator Hector Herrera will accompany the music. Canada’s best interpreters of art song have been assembled, including pianist Erika Switzer (Debut alum 2012), soprano Martha Guth (Debut alum 2006) and baritone Tyler Duncan (Debut alum 2012). Each performer has a rich international performance biography that is filled with some of the world’s leading concert stages, recital halls, opera companies and organizations.
