Understanding the Music: Susannah
Saturday, November 9 at 11:00 am - 12:00 pm
Dr. Colette Simonot-Maiello, Assistant Professor of Musicology, Desautels Faculty of Music, University of Manitoba, presenter.
In this talk, Dr. Simonot-Maiello will speak about how Carlisle Floyd transports a loose re-telling of the Apocryphal tale of Susannah and the Elders into New Hope Valley, Tennessee with a soundscape of the American south created by drawing on Appalachian folk traditions. Fiddling, folk songs (traditional and newly-composed), square dances, and Protestant hymns are woven into the music of this opera.
