Wander and Wail with Soprano Emily Thorner

6/1/2019 | Good Shepherd Center

Music Wallingford/Greenlake

Presented by the Wayward Music Series, Kin of the Moon has the profound honor to welcome new music rising star soprano Emily Thorner to Seattle for her only West Coast appearance in 2019. Premiering both Kaley Lane Eaton’s Funeral Sentences for Damaged Cells and Leanna Keith’s Concerto for Tea Ceremony, Emily is known for her command of stratospheric high notes and is highly sought-after for world premieres due to her unusual range and fearless virtuosity. One of only two vocalists to appear at the 2018 Bang on a Can Festival, Emily recorded the US premiere of Wolfgang Rihm’s Frage, known for its impossibly high tessitura of over 22 high F’s and beyond. The creation of Funeral Sentences has been sponsored, in part, by a generous composer grant from CityArtist.
