Tickets start at only $21

Sounds from the dream world – virtuosic, ironic, mischievous, and dramatic. Soundstreams, closes the Festival with The Music of Unsuk Chin, one of contemporary music’s most sought-after creators, who renders in sound the “visions of immense light” she sees in her dreams. The concert includes Chin’s Cantatrix Sopranica, a playful exploration of the act of singing for two sopranos, countertenor, and ensemble featuring singer Carla Huhtanen, and “The Caterpillar,” an excerpt from her dazzling opera Alice in Wonderland. It’s All Forgotten Now (world premiere) and Love Locked Out, two works by Canada’s Chris Paul Harman, who shares Chin’s affinity for transforming familiar source materials with musical language that is fresh, vivid, and thrillingly modern, are also on the program. Both pieces, one of which will be a world premiere, are inspired by the 1930s popular songs of Al Bowlly. Guillaume Bourgogne conducts a virtuoso ensemble.

Stay after the concert for a post-show chat with Artistic Director Lawrence Cherney and artists from the concert.
