The Lydian Gale Parr by Karinne Keithley Syers and Alaina Ferris

424 West 44th Street (between 9th and 10th Avenues)
3:00pm

The Lydian Gale Parr is an oratorio that is part incantation, part curse, part history of a wandering, shape-shifting, ornate figure sent on an unending errand that loops from ancient cities to present-day container ships and back again. It treads a boundary line between speech, recitation, and song and is composed by Alaina Ferris for six vocalists.

This event is open to the public.

23-8
Multi-Day

The entire church will be filled with music once again Wednesday, January 23, 2019 through Friday, February 8, 2019. With guidance from Ben Krywosz of Nautilus Music-Theatre and music director Roger Ames, five New Dramatists playwrights, five composers, and five performers who sight-sing will immerse themselves in an intensive workshop that animates different tenets of collaboration, within a supportive, fine-tuned framework developed over 30 years. Over the course of 18 days, participants rotate working with one another to create overnight responses to different songwriting challenges.
