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.
23 singers and 12 instrumentalists perform music by 20 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 us for musical journey through time and a dreamer’s journey throughout history.
