School of Music faculty and students are featured artists in upcoming performances presented by Meany Center for the Performing Arts.
The UW Chamber Singers (Geoffrey Boers, director) provide the live soundtrack for a new work included in “Come to Your Senses,” a program by the internationally renowned Pilobolus dance troupe to be presented at Meany Center Nov. 14-16. The new work, made with collaborator Thao Nguyen, host of the podcast Song Exploder, was inspired by the company’s collaborations with RadioLab and MIT’s Computer Science and Artificial Intelligence Lab.
UW Music faculty musicians join singer songwriter Gabriel Kahane onstage for his Nov. 23 appearance at the Meany Center. Chamber group Frequency, led by Pacific Northwest violinist Michael Jinsoo Lim, includes UW Music faculty Melia Watras, viola; Sæunn Thorsteinsdóttir, cello; and Ted Poor, drums; as well as PNB violinist M Jennifer Caine Provine. The group performs with Kahane as he presents a musical diary of a cross-country train journey as well as selections from his album Book of Travelers and other releases.
Tickets and more information about both events is available at meanycenter.org.
