The Creatures: a bestiary retold
presented by UT CLUTCH
November 13, 2017 @ 7:30 pm - 9:00 pmFree
Last weekend was the premiere of my new song cycle for two voices and piano The Creatures: a bestiary retold, chosen as a winners of One Ounce Opera’s 2nd annual festival of song, Fresh Squeezed Ounce of Art Song. This week, One Ounce Opera performs this cycle again as guest artists on the UT CLUTCH composers concert.
The Creatures: a bestiary retold explores the monsters of medieval bestiaries through the imaginative poetry of Jeffery Beam. The songs were written at the request of soprano Maureen Broy Papovich and in memory of Lee Hoiby, a true master of art song and a generous mentor to me.
The show will feature other works by UT composer Matthew Lyons, Luke Mayernik, Thomas Yee, Nathan Nokes, Nicholas Clark, Vaheed Jahandari, and Karen Yang.
