Lisa Neher Music presents Of Wind and Waves, a virtual concert of vocal and instrumental solos exploring the currents of air, water and emotions that define our natural and psychological world. The concert serves as a release party for Neher’s EP featuring selections from the concert.
The music, composed by Neher, conjures crashing waves on the ocean shore, soaring winds across grassy plains, the erratic flitting of moths in the moonlight, the eerie luminescing of deep water fish, and the longing of loved ones separated from one another. The concert holds space to sit with your deepest feelings, to take joy in the daily beauties around you, and to discover the strange and quirky creatures of the animal kingdom.
Of Wind and Waves is a collaboration with performers from across North America: Rose Bishop (flute, piccolo) of Iowa City, IA; Christine Hoerning (clarinet) of Montreal, Québec; Danielle Kuntz (harp) of Anne Arbor, MI; Catherine Rinderknecht Moritz (violin) of Atkins, IA; and Lisa Neher (mezzo-soprano) of Portland, OR. The concert includes the world premiere of Night Song for Moths, a piccolo solo commissioned by Rose Bishop, and a performance of Reach Out for flute, which was premiered in the spring of 2020 as part of the Gabriela Lena Frank Creative Academy of Music’s #GigThruCOVID initiative.
