Research output: Non-textual formExhibition


Yara Ensemble is an exciting and unique collaboration between Portuguese-Italian pianist Dr. Alexandra Mascolo-David and Brazilian-British-American mezzo-soprano Ms. Sarah Stone. With direction and choreography by Dr. Annette Thornton and digital media art by Mr. Eric Limarenko, the Yara performance experience weaves music, theatre, and art into an intimate and accessible narrative journey designed for 21st century audiences. Our goal is to create an immersive performance experience where the audience is engaged in the act of discovery. Entertaining while educating is at the core of the Yara mission.<br> Showcasing music of the Iberian Peninsula and the Americas, Yara Ensemble's repertoire includes a combination of classical, folk, and popular music repertoire unified by a narrative theme. Yara recitals tell a story and are supported by diverse media that allow audience members the freedom to sit back and enjoy without having to squint at programs in a darkened hall. (Excerpt from website)<br>We are currently pursuing grants and have received $1000 in funding from the Dean’s office. <br><br>For more info on the Yara ensemble please visit https://www.yaraensemble.com/bios<br>
