Progressive Choir Performing Next Week at SAMA
Progressive choir, From Those Who Follow the Echoes, debut a new work for choir, dance and theatre at San Antonio Museum of Art Tuesday March 13th.
Move through space and time during a collaborative performance by local “street” choir, From Those Who Follow the Echoes, and San Antonio Dance Umbrella on Tuesday March 13th at the San Antonio Museum of Art. Original music and choreography will be performed in select museum spaces that tell a story of San Antonio’s future inspired by its 300-year history. Local actors, Brian Caron and Marcos Cervantes, will guide the narrative performance as an astronaut, philosopher and conquistador.
From Those Who Follow the Echoes, re-imagine unique spaces for their performances by incorporating elements of movement, space and depth. For this performance at SAMA, musicians will be singing and moving in a coordinated manner, actors will serve as the backdrop to the music and dancer Fa Winsborough will improv in select areas. A two-part finale will begin as an audience participation piece that will lean on patrons to perform musical cues using dog toys, clicking pens and magazines while the choir harmonizes. The second part is an ode to the late Andy Kaufman, as everyone will be invited to SAMA’s courtyard for cookies while the actors perform their final lines.
From Those Who Follow the Echoes is an award winning “street” choir led by music director and composer, Nathan Felix, with a two-fold mission of bringing unique contemporary choral/classical music performances to San Antonio establishments as well as to new and underserved listeners. Felix is the San Antonio winner of the “2018 Tobin Prize for Artistic Excellence”, and the 2018 Best Public Art Display for his “Opera on a Bus.”
