U.S. Premiere
Featuring vocalists Shara Nova (My Brightest Diamond), Padma Newsome, DM Stith and conductor Mischa Santora
Poetry and visual art by Nathaniel Bellows
In partnership with the University of Minnesota School of Music

Sarah Kirkland Snider's Unremembered, “one of the most significant and harrowing releases of [2015]” (Thought Catalog), explores the fragility and nuance of memories and emotions in an hour-long, 13-part song cycle inspired by poems and illustrations by Nathaniel Bellows. Musicians of The Saint Paul Chamber Orchestra join Snider’s all-star ensemble including vocalists Padma Newsome (Clogs), DM Stith (Sufjan Stevens) and Shara Nova (My Brightest Diamond) to perform the U.S. premiere of Unremembered. Each movement is accompanied by video projections featuring Bellows's hand-drawn illustrations interleaved with photography and videography of his poetry’s rural New England setting, augmenting the “intricately magical landscape” (New York Magazine) that Snider crafts with her “genre erasing” (The New Yorker) compositional skill.
