Student Opera Theatre Association presents: "Looking to the East: Orientalism in Song" with Sari Gruber, soprano; Joe Dan Harper, tenor; and Benjamin Binder, piano

Friday, September 26, 2014
8:00 PM, Mason Hall Rosch Recital Hall

'In our increasingly globalized world, it seems like East and West have never been more interested in each other. Just think about how the rise of China and the political turmoil in the Arab world have inspired us in the West to learn more about those Eastern cultures. In the nineteenth and early twentieth centuries, fascination with the East was just as strong, but without the guidance of television or the internet, much was left up to the imagination. European song composers and poets filled that void with sumptuous melodic evocations of those faraway lands and peoples. In their songs, the East became an exotic and colorful realm where one could taste of forbidden pleasures, even as danger lurked around every corner. This concert will transport you once again to the East of myth and dream.' Fredonia voice faculty member Joe Dan Harper, along with guests from the Pittsburgh Song Collaborative, will present a concert highlighting Orientalism in song repertoire. Guest artists include: Sari Gruber, soprano; Benjamin Binder, pianist and musicologist. This concert is the culmination of the Student Opera Theatre Association's 'Fall Vocal Week.' Free, and open reception to follow the performance (audience is encouraged to greet and talk with the artists).
