Soprano Abigail Chapman, violist Gregory K. Williams, and pianist Fang-Yi Chu will present a concert of classical music by living composers on Monday, July 23rd. The performance includes songs in Chinese, Russian, and English, and pieces by composers from New York, Maine, Colorado, Puerto Rico, The Netherlands, and China. At times whimsical, at times gorgeously lush, and at times spiky and rhythmic, this exciting program will reward the adventurous concert-goer. Themes of romantic love, nature, freedom, and even death will be explored. The audience will hear a different take on Chinese folk song that leaves them attuned to new ideas of beauty, and luscious neo-Romantic music that will wash over them and leave them wanting more.  We’ll hear a lesson from the wisdom of Rumi; a child playing with the four winds; music about insomnia; and even four Amendments from the Bill of Rights in song!  This concert is sure to delight, intrigue, and inspire.
Abigail Chapman is known for her work in early music, her creative song recitals, and her performances of 20th and 21st century vocal music; she has performed throughout the United States, as well as in Germany, Japan, and New Zealand.  Gregory K. Williams plays with several New York City and regional orchestras, including the American Ballet Theatre and the Berkshire Opera Festival; he is also the founding violist with Rhymes With Opera and the Red Door Chamber Players. Recent performances include solo recitals in the Netherlands, Germany, the Czech Republic, and throughout the United States.  An experienced collaborative pianist, Fang-Yi Chu is the pianist of the Red Door Chamber Players, and a staff accompanist at the Mannes School of Music. She has performed in New York’s International Keyboard Institute Festival, and with singers in Germany and Austria by invitation of Musiktheater Bavaria and the American Institute of Musical Studies (AIMS) in Graz.
