Liquid Music Series: Sarah Kirkland Snider's "Unremembered"

  • Minneapolis, MN Ted Mann Concert Hall, 2128 Fourth Street South Minneapolis, MN, 55455 United States

The Saint Paul Chamber Orchestra's Liquid Music Series presents Sarah Kirkland Snider's Unremembered, “one of the most significant and harrowing releases of [2015]” (Thought Catalog), which explores the fragility and nuance of memories and emotions in an hour-long, 13-part song cycle inspired by poems and illustrations by Nathaniel Bellows. Musicians of The Saint Paul Chamber Orchestra join Snider’s all-star ensemble including vocalists Padma Newsome (Clogs), DM Stith (Sufjan Stevens) and Shara Nova (My Brightest Diamond) to perform the U.S. premiere of Unremembered. Each movement is accompanied by video projections featuring Bellows's hand-drawn illustrations interleaved with photography and videography of his poetry’s rural New England setting, augmenting the “intricately magical landscape” (New York Magazine) that Snider crafts with her “genre erasing” (The New Yorker) compositional skill.
