Anthony Roth Costanzo, Stephanie Blythe Star In 2019 Resonant Bodies Festival

By David Salazar

The Resonant Bodies Festival will return to New York this fall with three unique concert experiences.

First off, the festival will feature tenor Anthony Roth Costanzo alongside Charmaine Lee and Jane Sheldon. Costanzo will feature music for voice and piano while Sheldon will bring an original monodrama “Poem for a Dried Up River.” Lee will work with Conrad Tao on “site-specific spatialization, live signal processing, and fixed media to explore a variety of sonic environments – each a meditation on both the mechanical and human qualities of vocal and electronic sound.”

Performance Date: Sept. 3, 2019

Kate Soper will team up with Ted Hearne and Anaïs Maviel for a night that features such music as “Fragments of Parmenides,” “Musical Dialogues,” and a new song cycle by Hearne. Maviel will present a solo set.

Performance Date: Sept. 4, 2019 

Finally, Stephanie Blythe will star in a performance that features disco, rock, and opera. She will be joined by Arooj Aftab who will also fuse a number of genres. Finally, Erin Gee will showcase a number of pieces with the Argento Ensemble.

Performance Date: Sept. 5, 2019
