Aaron Grad, Composer & Artistic Consultant
Alexander Weimann, Music Director
Danielle Sampson, vocal soloist
Local composer Aaron Grad (the creator of the electric the orbo concerto Strange Seasons) returns for a program entitled For All Our Sisters, featuring soprano Danielle Sampson and the Seattle Baroque Soloists led by Alex Weimann. 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 times to today. Aaron’s new work, co-created with the Bellingham-based poet Jennifer Bullis, shines new light on the Sirens, those infamous temptresses from ancient Greece.
