Date: July 10, 2020
Time: 1:00 pm

LIVE JULY 10-11, 2020: 1PM AND 6PM

Presented as part of HERE Arts Center’s #StillHERE
A new opera-theatre, situated in a Zoom call, diving into the anxiety and serenity of this paradoxical moment. Yesterday’s action in the street, today’s paralyzing personal stasis, tomorrow’s urgent assemblage, viewed through the bizarre filter of social and emotional distance.
Do you dream of screens?
What year is it?
We’re together with everyone we’ve ever known.
Jeff’s dad shows up to get us out of there.
We might be in Texas.
There will be absurdity, serenity, severity, and uncanniness.
Save the date.

Wednesday, June 17, 2020

You can watch the live concert on either:
YouTube Live – youtube.com/c/charlottenewmusic

Popebama will be present a series of quiet but energetic pieces amplifying small sounds in a small apartment. Composed in -the-moment, by Erin Rogers (saxophone) + Dennis Sullivan (percussion).

Popebama is a New York-based experimental duo that focuses on exciting performances of unconventional works. Described as “Noisily Virtuosic” (clevelandclassical.com), Erin Rogers (saxophone) and Dennis Sullivan (percussion) are composer-performers who apply text, electronics, and high-energy instrumental writing to freshly-squeezed sounds.

The Byrne:Kozar:Duo will be presenting music by Icelandic composer Finnur Karlsson, NYC based vocalist and composer Jeffrey Gavett, and a sneak preview of a new work by Beth Wiemann!

Byrne:Kozar:Duo – Created by New York City and Boston based soprano Corrine Byrne and trumpeter Andy Kozar, the Byrne:Kozar:Duo presents historically informed performances of Baroque music for natural trumpet and soprano in addition to commissioning new works for modern trumpet and soprano. They have been said to create ‘an arresting symbiosis in their melding of voice and trumpet timbres’ (Textura) and that the ‘trumpet and voice seem to take on one another’s qualities’ (Bandcamp Daily).
