Immovable Objects, Irresistible Forces: Songs of Human and Natural Wonders
Cantilena performs a variety of songs for women’s voices about forces of nature, human endurance, and triumph over personal challenges. Compositions range from Romantic to Modern, featuring works by Franz Schubert, Emma Lou Diemer, and Ron Jeffers. Experience Jonathan Pieslak’s energetic “Solar Flares” set to Romanian poetry, Susan Borwick’s bluesy setting of a famous speech by Sojourner Truth, Carol Barnett’s raucous and lusty interpretation of Dorothy Parker’s sarcastic “Song of Perfect Propriety,” and music sung by women imprisoned during WWII in Sumatra as memorably depicted in the film “Paradise Road.”
