From time to time I get a feeling about an upcoming performance that it could be something very special. The collaboration with Volti and ODC/Dance (formerly Oberlin Dance Cooperative) at Grace Cathedral, with performances coming up on February 9 and 10, 2018, inspires just such a feeling. Joby Talbot’s unaccompanied score in four movements for 17 individual voices is ravishing. It is a telling of the Camino de Santiago pilgrimage in Spain. The audience, singers, and dancers will move through Grace Cathedral WITH ALL THE PEWS REMOVED.
If the ideas of uplifting, transcendent, deeply spiritual, and extraordinarily beautiful appeal to you, I think you should go on line and get your tickets now. https://www.odc.dance/Miracles
I’m not trying to drum up business (they will only sell a maximum of 200 tickets for each of the two performances and it is expected to sell out early). I want to let you know so that you don’t miss it.
SOLD OUT – we’re so sorry, no more seats remain! Maybe we can revive it next season, we’ll let you know.
It is a privilege and honor to work with KT Nelson and the dancers of ODC. This is one of several wonderful collaborations currently and recently on Volti’s schedule. We recently performed and recorded with Kronos Quartet, we are performing new music of John Luther Adams with the Seattle Symphony at Zellerbach for Cal Performances (link) on April 7, we are also performing for the Bard Music West Festival (link) on April 6, and we have a project coming up in 2020 with the Del Sol String Quartet (link) with new music by Huang Ruo on Angel Island. The music will be based on the poetry left on dormitory walls by Chinese immigrants.
Wishing you all a wonderful 2018.
