The stories of women from antiquity resonate through our times. In this program, local composer Aaron Grad (the creator of the electric theorbo concerto Strange Seasons) returns for a program featuring soprano Danielle Reutter-Harrah and an ensemble of Rachell Ellen Wong, violin; Janet See, flute; Annabeth Shirley, cello; Deborah Fox, theorbo; and Jillon Stoppels Dupree, harpsichord. 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.
