Soprano Tony Arnold, called “a bold, powerful interpreter” by the New York Times and “fearless” by the New Yorker, will perform Beauty and the Beast from Dove Songs by ACA member David Liptak on this year’s Resonant Bodies Festival. The concert program also includes works by Thomas Adès, Susan Botti, Elliott Carter, George Crumb, Jason Eckardt, and Sheila Silver, among others.
The Resonant Bodies Festival is an annual festival of contemporary vocal music that presents nine dynamic vocalists across three nights. The Festival showcases "today’s most talented singers... seamlessly blend[ing] classical, avant-garde and indie-folk” (Feast of Music). Vocalists are invited to curate and perform in their own 45-minute set, with no restrictions on repertoire, format, or style.
Founded in 2013, the Resonant Bodies Festival is a one-of-a-kind opportunity to hear virtuosic contemporary music vocalists perform cutting-edge repertoire. Having "already made a valuable contribution to the city’s music scene” (New York Times), the festival's third year proves to be its most ambitious and exciting, featuring: Dawn Upshaw, Lucy Shelton, Tony Arnold, Du Yun, Amanda DeBoer Bartlett, Jessica Aszodi, Jeffrey Gavett, Kate Soper, and Rachel Calloway.
