Tippet Rise Art Center Announces 2023 Season

By David Salazar

The Tippet Rise Art Center has announced its 2023 season.

“After being isolated for the long years of the pandemic, being together in the Olivier Music Barn had an otherworldly feeling for everyone this past summer. Music seemed truer than usual,” said Peter and Cathy Halstead, co-founders of Tippet Rise Art Center, in an official press statement. “This coming season, we’re going to have both the deep-grounded masterpieces of the past, but also emerging musicians and composers with new approaches to the same profound truths. We will present two new installations, sculptures by artists we have long admired, Alexander Liberman and Louise Nevelson, both born in Ukraine, whose vast steel compositions evoke not only the Industrial Revolution but also the celestial ratios hidden by ancient civilizations in Mayan temples and Tibetan mandala.”

For this article, our focus will be solely on vocal performances.

The company will present the premiere of Sir Stephen Hough’s “Songs of Love and Loss.” The work is a co-commission with Wigmore Hall in London. It will be bookended with two William Butler Yeats poems.

Performance Dates: January 2023

A new song cycle will follow by Errollyn Wallen for tenor Nicholas Phan and the Palaver Strings.

Performance Dates: TBA 2023
