In February 2020, soprano Caroline Miller collaborated with aerialist and artist Erin Garber-Pearson to interweave classical music, vocal performance, and the aerial arts. They both wanted to tell a story about loss, grief and the redemptive power of love. Aber combines “Ihr habt nun Traurigkeit” from Ein deutsches Requiem by Brahms, newly arranged for soprano and guitar by Nathan Silar with aerial silks and film. In the process of creating Aber, Caroline lost her grandmother. This piece and this partnership was there to catch her.

About the Gonzales Cantata -
Just in time for the election, a docu-opera of Melissa Dunphy’s brilliant setting of the transcripts from Attorney General Alberto Gonzales’s 2005 congressional hearings in the style of a Handelian oratorio is art as satire – at turns funny, charming, moving, and convicting.
