Melodia Women's Choir Presents Cassandra: Myths and Stories in Song

Melodia Women’s Choir, New York’s premier ensemble for women’s choral music conducted by Cynthia Powell, welcomes listeners to experience the world premiere of 'Cassandra', a dynamic and original new work from emerging composer Hilary Purrington, winner of Melodia’s 2015 Women Composer Commissioning Competition.

'Cassandra' lends its name to Melodia’s spring concert, an evening celebrating myths and stories in song. Scored for women’s voices, percussion and piano, 'Cassandra' takes its inspiration from the saga of the Trojan princess of Greek mythology.

The program also spotlights the powerful rhythms of Néo Ensemble in 'Dreams', a special work for taiko drums written by Kaoru Watanabe, formerly of Kodo. Also featured is 'Quarry Weave' by Meredith Monk, the 'Five Limericks' by Emma Lou Diemer and a selection of soulful pop favorites. Taisiya Pushkar, Melodia’s longtime collaborative pianist, accompanies the program.
