Identity of the Refugee in a new Song Cycle, "Passageway" by Jonathan Stark
Presented by Christina Wright-Ivanova and Stephanie Weiss, with composer Jonathan Stark
This concert features the World Premiere of a beautiful new song cycle, Passageway, by award-winning German composer Jonathan Stark with English text by Franziska Hass. The cycle explores psychological and emotional aspects of the current refugee crisis through music. Featuring Stephanie Weiss, mezzo-soprano, and Christina Wright-Ivanova, piano, this recital will deeply explore the physical and mental journey of a refugee's estrangement from home and family, as well as the overall concept of "home." By shedding light on this current issue through music, this recital will highlight the individual as he/she exists separately from the masses.
