Athlone Artists announces the creation of a new Chamber Concert Series, offering curated programs of art song and vocal chamber music to venues throughout the United States and abroad. Each program is tailored for and by artists from the boutique agency’s roster of classical singers, collaborative pianists, conductors and stage directors. The unique vocal chamber music programming opportunity is the brainchild of President and Founder, Miguel A. Rodríguez to further fulfill Athlone Artists’ mission to cultivate and champion brilliant artistry. Chamber concert bookings are available for the 2022-23 and 2023-24 season, with programs appropriate for any stage – from a concert hall to a museum to a café, or anywhere frequented by culturally curious audiences.
The current programs available for booking include a recital from the “vocally sumptuous” (Chicago Tribune) Whitney Morrison and pianist and conductor Tyson Deaton entitled “Gratitude,” which captures the mixed emotions of this past pandemic year through works by Mozart, Poulenc, Chevalier de Saint-Georges, Strauss, Friedrich Ochs, Daniel Catán, and H. Leslie Adams; “Mind Games” featuring contemporary works for voice and harp with mezzo-soprano Amanda Crider and soprano Nola Richardson accompanied by harpist Parker Ramsey; Schoenberg’s piano reduction of Das Lied von der Erde performed by tenor Cameron Schutza and mezzo-soprano Ann McMahon Quintero; a tribute concert dedicated to the Art of Fritz Wunderlich from tenor Eric Fennell; a Baroque Duo recital from mezzo-soprano Amanda Crider and countertenor Daniel Moody, accompanied by theorbo, cello, violin, and flute; a recital of works by American women sung by Barbara Quintiliani; and “The Good Son” showcasing the music of Vaughan Williams and Faure featuring tenor Alex Richardson.
“Coming out of the pandemic, we have been yearning to make these kinds of intimate connections with artists,” says Miguel Rodríguez of Athlone Artists. “We saw an opportunity to provide these connections with the brilliant artists on the Athlone roster. These personal performance offerings allow audiences to see a side of the artists they don’t often see on the operatic stage, to hear the nuances of the human voice.”
