The Tsitsit Fringe Festival in London is set to release “The Drowning Shore” on Oct. 17, 2021.

The showcase will star mezzo-soprano Clara Kanter and pianist Ben Smith, set against the backdrop of a new film cantata aimed at celebrating Scottish and Yiddish culture. There will also be pieces of music in Yiddish and Scottish composed by Alastair White.

The showcase will be directed by Hannah Lovell and was devised in collaboration with David Mazower.

Kanter has appeared with such companies as Birmingham Opera Company, Buxton Opera House, and Arcola Theatre. She was also a featured soloist for the Armonico Consort and in broadcast for BBC World Service Radio.

Smith is a London-based composer and performer who specializes in contemporary music.
