Event Information

Burning River Baroque presents:
The Other Side of the Story: Untold Perspectives on Familiar Tales

Society’s collective understanding of history is biased toward the perspectives of those with the privilege and power to preserve their stories. “The Other Side of the Story” looks beyond this power imbalance to shed light on characters whose viewpoints are underrepresented. Drawing from ancient mythology, literature, and Biblical passages, this program of dramatic music highlights issues and themes raised by the #MeToo campaign. From the Book of Judith (which is excluded from some canonical versions of the Bible) to the story of a Siren from her own perspective, we will show the ways in which ancient tales resonate in our communities today. In our continued commitment to promoting new works for baroque instruments, this program for soprano, flute, cello and harpsichord melds baroque repertoire with a medieval work and the premiere of Honey sweet we sing for you, a cantata by Aaron Grad and Jennifer Bullis.

Malina Rauschenfels, soprano
Paula Maust, harpsichord
Guest artists:
Sarah Lynn, baroque flute & Glenna Curren baroque cello

This event will also include a poetry call. 

Poets are invited to submit #yoursideofthestory

Composers are invited to attend and read poetry for possible future collaboration with poets.
