The Gift

Created with Erika Chong Shuch (director, choreographer),  Mark Winges (composer) and Denise Newman (librettist)

Premiere Z Space, San Francisco, 2015
Commissioned by Volti Choir, Robert Geary, founder and artistic director

Performed by Volti Choir with the Piedmont East Bay Children’s Choir

Project support: Gerbode-Hewlett Foundations Music Commissioning Awards Initiative

The combined creative energy of the team led to an interesting study into the marriage of music, movement, and space, an integration of the literary, visual, and performing arts ... Visually speaking, Pandora’s Gift yielded images that will linger in my memory for some time.
