Artemisia Vocal Trio
March 20, 2022 at 3:00 p.m.
The final concert of the 2021-2022 season on Sunday, March 20 at 3:00 pm. The concert will feature the female vocal trio, Artemisia, in an engaging, multi-media performance titled “She Was.”
She Was revives past and little-known stories of women, and celebrates the storytellers among us today who are keeping their legacies and influences alive. These stories are sung to life with a mix of folkloric vocal traditions, and arranged/composed music created by the group and five newly commissioned works by living female composers: Kyong Mee Choi, Hope Littwin, Rochelle Rice, Jess Godwin, and Jori Pilcher. To creatively accentuate the power of voice in multiple respects, we pair the group’s live music performance with elements of sound design using recorded interviews, archival footage, and devised writing. They blend this with a theatrical and staged narrative, featuring animations from Anne Beal, in a visceral inquiry into our past, present, and future. Learn more at the Artemisia web site.
