Featuring violinist Todd Reynolds and Ensemble 61
Part of 2011-2012 Performing Arts Season
Brooklyn-based composer/writer/singer Corey Dargel’s wry and witty assault on both pop and classical idioms employs deadpan vocals, awkward rhythms, and fragile harmonies to reveal heartbreaking intimacies. Join us for a two-part evening that features songs from Dargel’s art-pop song cycles Every Day Is the Same Day and Thirteen Near-Death Experiences. He’ll be joined by violinist Todd Reynolds (former member ETHEL string quartet) and the Twin Cities’ own Ensemble 61 for a brilliantly lyrical series of songs that flit gracefully between humorous and tragic.
Copresented with The Saint Paul Chamber Orchestra and in association with Kate Nordstrum Projects.
