An invitation courtesy of CFA staffer Andrew Chatfield:
Graduate music student Dina Maccabee presents new vocal pieces exploring the properties of the voice in dialogue with its many mediated reproductions, featuring student vocal group The Mixolydians. Alongside her own work, Ms. Maccabee will perform late twentieth-century pieces that challenge conventional narrative orientations of the voice. The significant influences of music by Meredith Monk, Alvin Lucier, Pauline Oliveros, Terry Riley, and Joan La Barbara are juxtaposed with homages to Mieskuoro Huutajat, the Finnish men’s shouting choir, early work by John Cage, and Meredith Willson’s musical theater innovations.
