Soprano Natalie Lerch and pianist Lucy Wenger explore the writings of female poets as interpreted by male composers. With only a few known selections by Debussy and Poulenc, the duo have assembled a program of new music featuring piano solos and songs for voice and piano by contemporary composers on texts by Emily Dickenson, Edna St. Vincent Milay, Roxanne Rea and Louise de Vilmorin. Included in the program are songs by Eric Banks, Gordon Getty, Bill Rea, Adam Stern and Paul Vasile. Piano rags by William Bolcom and tangos by Ernesto Nazareth offer additional variety.
Each month, Nonsequitur and a community of like-minded organizations and artists present ten concerts of adventurous and experimental music in the gorgeous Chapel Performance Space at the Good Shepherd Center (which sits on the traditional homelands of the Duwamish people): contemporary/post-classical composition, free improvisation and the outer limits of jazz, electronic/electroacoustic music, new instruments, phonography, sound art, and other innovative musics. Watch a video clip about us on the Seattle Channel.
