About this show
Stories told through a syntax created by water, voice, stone, tree, shell and snow. Performed by soprano Jocelyn Zelasko and percussionist Matthew Duvall, these are stories both immutable and impermanent, and told through the composition of ecoacoustic composer Matthew Burtner.
About The Chicago Artists Workshop
This performance is a continuation of The Chicago Artists Workshop [CAW] initiative created during the pandemic by the Grammy award-winning Chicago-based arts organization Eighth Blackbird. The mission of CAW during the pandemic was to support local artists with performance fees and streaming production support. This initiative, continuing the mission to support local art and artists in Chicago, is relaunching on July 5 with Stories of Vapor and Mist, featuring compositions by eco-acoustic composer Matthew Burtner.
The next CAW show will feature Grammy award-winning tenor Karim Sulayman as part of the LookOut Series event on August 2. More information on that show can be found here.
