Orchestra Underground: Sins & Songs

Shara Worden and her pop “alter-ego” My Brightest Diamond headline this program bringing the worlds of cabaret, pop, and jazz traditions into the orchestra concert hall. Kurt Weill’s cult classic The Seven Deadly Sins anchors the evening with Shara taking the lead. As My Brightest Diamond she performs her own evocative genre-bending songs, and then selections from Sarah Kirkland Snider’s Unremembered, songs that are about memory, innocence, and the ways we cope with an unpredictable world, recalling the composer’s childhood in rural Massachusetts. Composer and saxophonist Daniel Schnyder shakes up the gothic horror of Dracula with his own roots in jazz in the American premiere of DraKOOL. Carman Moore, a composer who not only defies categories, but “treats them with disdain.”(New York Times) offers MADIBA, commissioned by ACO and inspired by the life of Nelson Mandela
