Marginalia by Matt Boehler



Event Type(s): Arts / Theatre / Music, Literary
Organization: Victory Hall Opera
Description: A new, staged song cycle by Matt Boehler
For three voices, clarinet, cello and percussion

Books can be hiding places for precious objects, presses for delicate flowers, or message boards from one lover to another. As time passes, a book may change hands, and the secret contents remain within to be discovered later. Sometimes much later.

In 2016, UVA Library began the Book Traces project: to document objects and written material found in library books from the 19th and early 20th Centuries.

Inspired by this project, Victory Hall Opera commissioned award-winning composer Matt Boehler to write a new song cycle, weaving together a dialogue that speaks to Charlottesville today, and to Charlottesville as it has been before.

Join us in the stunning McGregor Room at the Alderman Library, and hear this moving new work for the first time.

Featuring Miriam Gordon-Stewart (soprano), Brenda Patterson (mezzo-soprano) and Will Ferguson (tenor), with Garrick Zoeter (clarinet), I-Jen Fang (percussion) and Kristen Wojcik (cello).

Co-produced by University of Virginia Library.
