MORTAL LESSONS

This is the second installment of a large, hour-long work for vocal quartet, percussion quartet, and two keyboards, based on a book with the same name by Dr. Richard Selzer. This semi-staged work uses Dr. Selzer’s lyrical, and often graphic, musings on surgery and the mysteries of the human body. Not quite an opera, and not really music theater, this work is a “medical oratorio” that finds the teases out the sacred elements in the operating theater. Listen to an excerpt here.

Tonia D’Amelio, soprano; Justin Montigne, countertenor; Samuel Faustine, tenor; Sidney Chen, baritone

John Jaworski, Mika Nakamura, Katrina Shore, and Stephanie Webster; percussion

Taylor Chen and Anne Rainwater; keyboards
