Another April gig

muse9They just keep coming in!  There’s another new kid on the block in the admirable tradition of young Toronto artists creating performance opportunities.  This one is called Muse 9 and it’s a collaboration between stage director Anna Theodosakis and collaborative pianist Hyejin Kwon.  Both of them are very talented with a track record in the Toronto indie opera scene.  Their first production, From the Diary of Virginia Woolf, is a theatrical art song performance featuring the music of Dominick Argento and Amy Beach paired with excerpts from Woolf’s novels, letters, and diaries.  It is an artistic exploration into the life and mind of Virginia Woolf through the performances of mezzo soprano Victoria Marshall, actor Keshia Palm, and dancer Renee Killough.  It’s playing at the Ernest Balmer Studio on April 13th at 8pm.  That’s the opening night of the COC’s The Nightingale so I won’t be there but I would be if I could.  Proceeds from the event will go to CAMH. Tickets are available at brownpapertickets.com under From the Diary of Virginia Woolf. https://www.brownpapertickets.com/event/3351476
