Adults: $25 Seniors: $20 W&L Faculty and Staff: $15 W&L Student/Student No charge but ID required. Taxes and processing fees included in ticket pricing. Collective Euphonia makes its W& L debut with a residency that includes a concert entitled: "It's complicated...Songs and Scenes on Relationships", featuring songs as well as opera and musical theater scenes exploring the adventurous complications of a wide range of relationships. Samuel Barber's one-act opera, "A Hand of Bridge" is the centerpiece of a program featuring scenes from Sondheim's "A Little Night Music", staged art songs, and excerpts from Brahms' "Liebeslieder waltzes". Metropolitan Opera baritone, Levi Hernandez joins a vocal quartet with soprano Asherah Capellaro, mezzo soprano Sandra Adans Krueger, and tenor Scott Williamson. W&L music faculty and Collective Euphonia members, Anna Billias, piano, Julia Goudimova, cello, and William McCorkle, piano/harpsichord will also collaborate in this chamber program premiere. Founded by Williamson in 2019, Collective Euphonia is a flexible, interdisciplinary, self-governing ensemble of creative professionals. The group combines art, dance, music, poetry, and theater in site-specific residencies. Their acclaimed debut residency at the Taubman Museum of Art and Temple Emanuel in Roanoke, Virginia, explored the relations of culture, faith, and sensuality in the Hebrew Song of Songs. Collective artists collaborate in a democratic creative process from the planning stages to the concert platforms, impacting audiences through multi-modal programming and unexpected intersectionalities.
