Songs of Ships & Childhood: Live Music & Performances | SF
>> Want to see our Top Picks for this week instead?
San Francisco Conservatory of Music | 50 Oak St, San Francisco, CA
Submitted by the Event Organizer
(This program is being performed to complete the graduate degree requirements in operatic performance at the San Francisco Conservatory of Music for Sarah Nadreau, mezzo-soprano.)
Description from the singer: “Throughout the history of art song, poets and composers have been fixated on the sea- it’s strength, it’s beauty, it’s ability to support growth, and it’s ability to destroy. Many of us have experienced life in a similarly tumultuous way. This year I am dedicating my final graduate performance to my nieces and nephews, the ships who have humbly guided me through my storm. I hope that this performance will give the audience insight into the mind of a child- their experiences, their energy, their depth, and their limitless strength like that of the sea. In the spirit of this theme, I encourage all attendees to bring their children, young siblings, family members, and/or friends with them if they so choose, and feel free to step in or out of the performance hall with them at any time necessary, preferably between sets. (Bathrooms with changing stations can be found on the cafe floor level below the performance hall.)
We truly hope that you will enjoy our “songs of ships and childhood”, a program that attempts to satisfy both trained musicians and non-academic music lovers alike. Our program will include a set of energetic Neapolitan songs with an ensemble of accordion and guitar, a set of Schubert lieder, a set of contemporary English lullabies, and end with a sung version of one of America’s best loved bedtime stories (to be announced at the time of the performance). All are welcome to attend, and any long-distance viewers may join in through the livestream link below. We’ll be going live 5-10 minutes before the beginning of the performance. Hope to see you there.”
