Expect the unexpected as we explore the musical and theatrical dreamscape a girl who dreams of encountering her love in different times and places throughout history.
The centerpiece of its 2017-18 season, Texas Early Music Project’s staged concert (with historical dances choreographed by Toni Bravo) features a celebration of Western music from its earliest days through the instruments, voices, campfires, cathedrals, palaces, and concert halls over the past 10 centuries.
Twenty-three singers and twelve instrumentalists perform music by twenty different composers, with Anonymous being well-represented through the centuries. Sometimes seemingly disparate composers are juxtaposed, as are musical genres: 19th-century Bizet with 16th-century Sephardic, 18th-century J.S. Bach with 1940s Americana, and much more.
The concert will feature numerous talented musicians, mostly Austin-area TEMP members, with a few others coming in just for this, including New York singers Ryland Angel (countertenor), Peter Walker (bass), and Seattle-based mezzo Erin Calata.
Join Texas Early Music Project for a musical journey through time and a dreamer's journey throughout history!
