The (lower) audience keeps a safe distanceOne of the most compelling artistic adventures in Miami is IlluminArts, a relatively new Vocal Arts organization founded by (Artistic Director) mezzo-soprano star Amanda Crider, which recently received a coveted Knight Foundation grant.  Their latest endeavor is a performance at Miami’s Pérez Art Museum of a haunting piece, titled “the little match girl passion,” inspired by Doris Salcedo’s exhibition currently on show and composed by David Lang.  Here the all-star cast are at an open rehearsal in preparation for the final performance a few days hence, on the evening of June 2nd.  [please hover over images for captions]

    The performance last night was stunning. The Pérez Auditorium was packed out which, as a friend commented, is a rarity for modern music. Bravo IlluminArts!
