IN SONG - SCO at The Church, July 10, 7:30pm EMILY EDMONDS
Experience a month in the company of icons of sung modernism when Sydney Chamber Opera presents IN SONG:
A recital-installation series of four artsong programs tracing a journey from the dawn of musical expressionism to a diverse clutch of Australian and world premieres, illustrating where the form has found itself in the 21st century.
SCO's adventurous and virtuosic singers Emily Edmonds, Anna Fraser, Simon Lobelson and Jane Sheldon will find common threads between composers, eras, styles and continents to craft a rare and comprehensive overview of the scintillating art of modern song.
Inside an evocative installation by artist Elizabeth Gadsby, these singers will illuminate a body of work indispensable to the artistic story of the 20th and 21st centuries.
Think artsong begins and ends at Schubert? Let IN SONG show you its recent past, present and future.
