The ISO and NewAm Present: Son Lux and Shara Worden
The ISO breaks musical boundaries with its first full-concert presentation with new artistic partners, New Amsterdam. Opening the performance, Son Lux will join the ISO for songs from his critically-acclaimed albums, arranged for the Orchestra by composers from the NewAm community. In addition, the IU-affiliated choir Apollo’s Voice will accompany Son Lux in excerpts from his work, Like Lazarus Did.
Edwin Outwater, Conductor
Shara Worden (My Brightest Diamond), Vocalist
Son Lux, Composer-performer
After intermission, Shara Worden, who appeared on stage with Time for Three at Happy Hour last January, will join the ISO to perform NewAm co-director Sarah Kirkland Snider’s highly-acclaimed song cycle, Penelope. Inspired by Homer’s epic poem The Odyssey, Snider’s Penelope is a meditation on memory, identity and what it means to come home.
Big Car Art + Design will also be on location participating in a collaborative "exquisite corpse" sketch by multiple artists influenced by the concert music.
The Indianapolis Symphony Orchestra recently announced its new partnership with New Amsterdam, the only non-profit, artist-services organization and record label of its kind, to periodically showcase the sophisticated, adventurous sound of highly-trained composers and instrumentalists on the NewAm label. Led by co-directors William Brittelle, Judd Greenstein, and Sarah Kirkland Snider, NewAm has been christened one of the most influential voices in new music by Time Out New York, The New York Times, New York Magazine, and many other outlets.
