Seattle Baroque Orchestra & Guests: For All Our Sisters
Virtual performance recorded at Town Hall Seattle
The stories of women from antiquity resonate through our times. In this program, local composer Aaron Grad (the creator fo the electric theorbo concerto Strange Seasons) returns for a program featuring soprano Danielle Reutter-Harrah and an ensemble of Rachell Ellen Wong, violin; Janet See, flute; Annabeth Shirley, cello; Deborah Fox, theorbo; and Jillon Stoppels Durpee, harpsichord. Exquisite cantatas from across the centuries will be interlaced with contemporary poetry and evocative interludes - including music by Debussy played on baroque flute - all designed to help us listen more compassionately to women's stories, from mythological time to today. Aaron's new work, co-created with the Bellingham-based poet jennifer Bullis, shines new lgiht on the Sirens.
