Fringe Chamber Music Festival: Opening Night

Maggie Finnegan and Hui-Chuan Chen

Logan Fringe Arts Space - Trinidad Theater - Washington, DC

8:00 pm

Winner of the 2016 Washington International Competition for Voice, Maggie Finnegan rocks the repertoire from medieval song to contemporary opera and everything in between. For the opening night of the Fringe Chamber Music Festival, Finnegan collaborates with pianist Hui Chuan-Chen on a program that reflects the multiplicity of voices in contemporary American song, from the raucous cabaret sounds of William Bolcom to the poignant and reflective The Captured Goddess by Dominick DiOrio. Fresh works by Lembit Beecher take vocal range and dexterity to the limits and hear the poetry of Emily Dickinson and Emily Bronte set as intimate portrait by composer Juliana Hall.

Tickets $20. More information and purchase tickets.
