World of animals in songs and tales
AN evening of art song that playfully and seriously explores the animalising (and humanising) that can arise under the sway of beasts and brutes, will be coming to the Welshpool Music Club on Thursday, January 27.
The New York-based musical ensemble Mirror Visions will present a concert called “Of Brutes and Beasts”, whose theme is the animal world in all its complexity.
The group was founded 26 years ago, and its passion for storytelling has produced thematic concerts on surprising subjects, based on scholarly research and laced with humour. Featuring soprano, tenor, baritone and piano, MVE’s programmes take audiences on an imaginative journey through song, showcasing well-known and often-neglected pieces by composers both familiar and new, set to texts by poets and historical figures that encompass published works, correspondence and other anecdotes. This program also includes works by Tchaikovsky, Handel, Poulenc and Hans Eisler.
The concert will take place at Welshpool Methodist Church, and begin at 7.30pm. Membership of the Welshpool Music Club costs £40 (£5 student), and tickets for individual concerts are available at £10 adult and £2 student.
