[Postponed] Play Nice - An Evening of Two Harps
Synchromy and Harp Society LA present an evening of two harps, surprising sounds, adventure, and interstellar space. Built around their commission of NCTRN V from Nicholas Deyoe, Synchromy has crafted a program that showcases the diversity of sound the harp can create, alongside vivid projections and entrancing stories told by actor Leandro Cano. Join us for a meditative journey through sonority, performed by harpists Elizabeth Huston and Catherine Litaker.
Made possible by a grant from the American Harp Society, Inc., Synchromy commissioned Nicholas Deyoe to write a piece for harp duet as part of his series of NCTRN pieces, pronounced “nocturne”. The fifth installment, NCTRN V is a study of persistence, meditation, obsession, and manipulated repetition. Since nocturnes are evocative of the night, this work will be paired with Krzywicki’s Starscape and Lizotte’s Suite Galactique. The second half of the concert will focus on the storytelling power of the harp. Featuring Beglarian’s Play Nice, Larkin’s The Juniper Tree, and Carro’s An End for a New Beginning, this grouping of music will showcase comical, wistful, and dark narratives. Actor Leandro Cano will narrate our performance of The Juniper Tree, based on a Grimm Fairly Tale that shockingly tells of child abuse, murder, and cannibalism.
