2021-22Concert Season

Wayward Sisters

A Dynamic Tapestry of Sound and Movement

Please note that the May 21 performance time has been changed to 2 PM from 7:30 PM

The tradition of three women’s voices intertwined in vibrant and sensuous music making stretches from the flowering of the Italian Renaissance to the Wailin’ Jennys, the Supremes, and the Andrews Sisters. The 17th century gave birth to many groups of highly skilled sopranos, and the finest composers of the age competed to write for them. Choreographer Anna Mansbridge has reimagined these creations as fully theatrical events, pairing four sopranos (Danielle Reutter-Harrah, Tess Altiveros, Arwen Myers, and Teresa Wakim) with three female dancers and the PMW chamber ensemble. This dynamic tapestry of sound and movement includes works by 17th-century masters Monteverdi, Mazzocchi, and Rossi, as well as Seattle composer Karen P. Thomas’ Doubleheart and the world premiere of Stephen Stubbs’ setting of the missing Baccante scene at the end of Monteverdi’s Orfeo. Truly a feast for the eyes and ears!
