Since its launch in March 2020, the PARMA Live Stage has streamed a multitude of concerts for artists to showcase their music beyond the concert hall. After successful premieres from Simon Rattle, the Armenian State Symphony Orchestra, and more over the years, the Live Stage Series is back with a fresh lineup of programs for the Fall 2022 season:
Michael J. Evans: Reunion
Thursday, October 27 at 7 PM EDT
PARMA Recordings is proud to present composer Michael J. Evans’s Reunion, a piece celebrating our return to social life post-Covid. Premiered live by the Portland Youth Philharmonic on May 21st at the Bauman Auditorium in Newberg OR, the music begins at, and emerges from, our experiences during lockdown, including the isolation and self reflection that was a major part of our world at that time.
Carl Vollrath: Songs of Innocence
Thursday, November 10 at 7 PM EST
Composer Carl Vollrath returns to the live stage with selections from his upcoming Navona Records release, OLD & NEW POETRY VOL 2. Featured in this premiere is a visual presentation of Vollrath’s Songs of Innocence, a setting of William Blake’s poetry performed by pianist Yoko Hagino and mezzo-soprano Aliana de la Guardia. Filmed in Rockport MA’s Shalin Liu Performance Center, this performance also features It’s Over, a tender piece of Vollrath’s original texts set to music.
