RESONATE: Naomi Louisa O Connell, Emma O’Halloran & Gary Beecher
How do you write a song? Or an aria? Or an opera? How do you make your voice do THAT?
Join glór’s 2022 artist in residence, singer/librettist Naomi Louisa O’Connell with composer Emma O’Halloran and pianist Gary Beecher for an evening of performance and chat that will reveal the artistic process of writing music that speaks to us today. The evening will include presentations of new material developed at glór for voice, piano, and live electronics, as well as pieces that have inspired the performers throughout their careers.
“Emma O’Halloran makes intensely beautiful (or beautifully intense?) works that scatter the boundary between acoustic and electronic music.” The Washington Post (22 for ’22: Composers to Watch this Year)
“Gary Beecher is a subtle, sophisticated player with a maturity of both technique and interpretive outlook.” Belfast Telegraph
