event: BEYOND THE BINARY
May 15, 2022
The Fillmore - Fishtown - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania
Mendelssohn Chorus of Philadelphia - Dominick DiOrio
"There are more things in heaven and earth than are dreamt of in your philosophy..."
A new major world premiere composed by Andrea Clearfield with libretto by Ellen Frankel and new percussion instruments designed by David Kontak.
In a world where technology encroaches more and more on our lived experiences, Beyond the Binary explores the question of what it means to be fully human. Featuring percussion-driven instrumental rock trio Square Peg Round Hole and Philadelphia-based drag performer Cookie DiOrio as “The Oracle,” and additional music of Carlos Cordero, Moira Smiley, Zanaida Robles, and my original work Alleluia.
Not a typical choral concert, this multimedia experience is part film showing, part theater presentation, and part musical showcase, with a happy hour for good measure! Learn more and purchase tickets.
