Conspirare joins with composer Reena Esmail and poet Amy Fogerson on a unique project to bring these Quarantine Madrigals to life. Esmail says that the madrigals, composed in response to the pandemic, are intended to “trace the break from society, the descent into isolation, and the eventual return to one another;" the lyrics to each madrigal are haikus by Fogerson. This online event features singing by Conspirare artists and a live discussion with Craig Hella Johnson, Esmail, and Fogerson. Note: Each madrigal will be featured in a weekly “Madrigal Mondays” segment on Facebook starting March 22, and each of the Conspirare singer videos will be available for singers to download and sing along with to create their own performance videos. See website for details.
Mon., March 15, 7pm. Free.
