Sarah Kirkland Snider’s compositions for the song cycle Penelope have been described by Pitchfork as “gorgeous . . . a hauntingly vivid psychological portrait, one that explores a dark scenario with a light, almost quizzical touch, finding poetic resonances everywhere.” Inspired by Homer’s epic poem, the Odyssey, Penelope is a meditation on memory, identity, and what it means to come home. *Beth Morrison Projects (BMP) is a

New York City–based production company with a reputation for cuttingedge work in opera, musical theater, and multi-media concerts. BMP’s work is seen all over the world in such venues as BAM, Lincoln Center, the Barbican in London, LA Opera, the Holland Festival, the Beijing Music Festival, and many more.

Introducing a whole new way for audiences and musicians to connect. Curated by Shea Rose and Simone Scazzocchio, the series will feature pop, rock, and hip-hop artists performing in our sonic cube, Calderwood Hall.
