Dreams. Memory. Inner Monologue. Comprised of music composed within the last decade, the program explores our hopes, fears, unspoken ideas, and even parts of us we're not sure exist. The music comes from from Princeton PhD student, Emma O'Halloran, the chair of the University of Michigan's music theory and composition department, Erik Santos, and the internationally celebrated Finnish composer, Kaija Saariaho. The brilliant New York-based soprano, Madeline Healey will join Yale voice teacher, Gene Stenger and San Francisco Opera's Adler Fellow in collaborative piano, César Cañón in this daring and thrilling concert.
