Emily Marvosh, contralto
American contralto Emily Marvosh has been gaining recognition for her “plum-wine voice,” and “graceful allure,” on the stages of Carnegie Hall, Jordan Hall, Disney Hall, Lincoln Center, Prague’s Smetana Hall, and Vienna’s Stefansdom. Recent solo appearances include the Boston Symphony Orchestra, Princeton Festival, American Bach Soloists, Charlotte Symphony, Tucson Symphony Orchestra, Phoenix Symphony, Chorus Pro Musica, Music Worcester, and Cantata Singers. She is a core member of the Lorelei Ensemble, which promotes innovative new music for women. With Lorelei, she has enjoyed collaborations with composer David Lang, BMOP, and the BSO. She belongs to Beyond Artists, a coalition of artists that donates a portion of their concert fee to organizations they care about. She supports Common Cause and Rosie’s Place Boston.
Sarah Moyer, soprano
Soprano Sarah Moyer’s recent and upcoming solo work includes performances with Cape Symphony Orchestra, Aspen Chamber Symphony, Bourbon Baroque, Lost Dog New Music Ensemble, Emmanuel Music, Boston Modern Orchestra Project, Mistral, and Les Bostonades. She has performed world premieres by Harbison, Kallembach, Theofanidis, and Runestad, among others, and American premieres by Melani and Nørgård. As a choral artist, she appears with GRAMMY® nominated groups Skylark, Seraphic Fire, Conspirare, Clarion Music Society, True Concord, as well as Santa Fe Desert Chorale, Lorelei Ensemble, The Thirteen, Spire, and Ensemble Origo. She enjoys running triathlons with her husband and expanding her refrigerator magnet collection.
Kyle Hemingway, sixteen years old and doesn't need a governess
Kyle Hemingway needs no introduction to the world of Boston cabaret. Known in equal parts for his sartorial splendor, sardonic wit, and sassy savoir-faire, Kyle is Boston's answer to Oscar Wilde, Cole Porter, and RuPaul (not that any of them were asking.) By day he is a senior designer at MIT Technology Review, by night he enjoys sipping a good cocktail, slinging bon mots, and—every so often—putting on a show. He collects vintage etiquette books and would love if you followed him on Instagram.
Marimba Cabaret is an evening of guilty pleasures featuring show tunes and pop covers re-imagined for marimba, vibraphone and voice. Brian Calhoon will play, sing, and (at times) stand 7-feet tall in sparkly stilettos. Directed and accompanied by percussionist Greg Jukes, Marimba Cabaret invites you to undo the taboo in this award-winning musical coming out story.
Winner of the 2017 Critic’s Choice Award at PortFringe Theater Festival, audiences say Marimba Cabaret is “a fabulous time” and “fun, unexpected, inventive, and full of heart”. Guaranteed to make you laugh, cry, and sing along, there’s something for everyone in this eclectic evening of mash-ups and marimba covers.
See what happens when a classically-trained percussionist with a love of theater (and killer shoes) puts on a show.
a ticketed, classical-ish performance series taking place the first Sunday night of every month at the AERONAUT taproom in Somerville, MA, shining light on the ridiculous pleasure of collective listening. No stodginess, no competing sound–just sweet, shared silence, beautiful beers, and beautiful people. Please stay for an after-party with the artists.
The pindrop sessions are offered in partnership with WGBH, public broadcasting for New England, and supported by 99.5 WCRB, Classical Radio Boston.
