Los Angeles Chamber Orchestra’s Close Quarters interdisciplinary digital series melding musical and visual arts continues with guest conductor Grant Gershon, who leads the LACO-commissioned world premiere of “Hyo” by 2020-21 Sound Investment Composer Peter S. Shin.
Additionally, internationally renowned soprano and native Californian Nicole Cabell makes her LACO debut performing Britten’s “Les illuminations,” a song cycle set to the poetry of Arthur Rimbaud, and “Lumee’s Aria” from the Pulitzer Prize-winning opera “p r i s m” by LACO Creative Advisor and Composer in Residence Ellen Reid.
The performance incorporates animation and drawn portraiture by visual artist Jian Lee as part of a pioneering collaboration in which Shin and Lee are actively working together to conjure up visuals as the piece is written throughout the multi-month artistic process. The Britten and Reid segments, cinematic in nature, spotlight collaborations with stage director George Miller, choreographer Rebecca Steinberg and dancers Layne Paradis Willis and Joe Davis. LACO Creative Director of Digital Content James Darrah provides visual curation.
The new episode is available to the public for free and can be streamed on demand following its premiere on Friday, May 21, at 6:30 p.m. at laco.org/close-quarters, as well as on LACO’s YouTube and Facebook live channels. Donations are requested at laco.org/donate.
