Concert Rebels presents Cycles of Resistance, a recital featuring operatic activist Chelsea Hollow and pianist Taylor Chan. The program chronologically explores poetry and texts of resilience and rebellion throughout the 20th and 21st centuries featuring 9 world premieres in 8 languages. Highlights include Living Water by Lauren McCall, inspired by the Flint Water Crisis; Al kan kuşak by Özden Gülsün Keskin weaving together harrowing stories from the Turkish Femicide; Maagal by Michael Wiener, featuring text from Hannelore Brenner’s The Girls of Room 28 which celebrates the tenacity, altruism, and strength of a group of young girls who passed through the Theresienstadt internment camp on their way to Auschwitz; and I could not allow that to stand by Jason Cady, using text from Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez’s response to the harassment she faced from a fellow congressman. Cady’s piece was premiered virtually as a presentation Chelsea made as a guest speaker for The United Nations’ Discussion on Human Rights, Arts, & Protest. The majority of the program was commissioned by soprano and curator, Chelsea Hollow in the beginning of the pandemic, bringing together artists and librettists from around the globe digitally to create inspiring works with a deep connection to activism, resilience, and the hope to heal deep societal wounds. Join us for an evening of reflection, inspiration, and communal growth.
