Performance One: Maggie Finnegan & Hui-Chuan Chen
Winner of the 2016 Washington International Competition for Voice, Maggie Finnegan rocks the repertoire from medieval song to contemporary opera and everything in between. For the opening night of the Fringe Chamber Music festival, Finnegan collaborates with pianist Hui Chuan-Chen on a program that reflects the multiplicity of voices in contemporary American song, from the raucous cabaret sounds of William Bolcom to the poignant and reflective Captured Goddess by Dominick DiOri. Fresh works by Lembit Beecher take vocal range and dexterity to the limits and hear the poetry of Emily Dickinson and Emily Bronte set as intimate portrait by composer Juliana Hall.
Those who arrive late to the Chamber Music Series will be seated up to 30 minutes from the start time of the performance. Arrivals made beyond 30 minutes will not be admitted.
