Patriots opera, The Whale, Something on the Wing at Highwire

Thursday, July 19 at 8 PM – 10 PM

Highwire Arts presents an evening mixing music and theater, with guest artists from New York.

First, Something on the Wing, a project led by Highwire’s own Ray Palmer, performs a mix of poetry, music, and more.

Second, The Whale (Kory Cook and Edward Vasquez) play music that is big, like Texas. Free, noisy, experimental, acoustic, a duo, a trio, creative noise and boundless energy in pure exaltation. Check it out for yourself at https://soundcloud.com/koryjazz1.

Finally, Jeff Young and Paul Pinto, members of New York ensemble thingNY, join us on their album release tour of their work entitled: Jeff Young and Paul Pinto, Patriots, Run for Public Office on a Platform of Swift and Righteous Immigration Reform, Lots of Jobs, and a Healthy Environment: An Opera by Paul Pinto and Jeffrey Young. Created in 2011 as a parody of contemporary politics and politicians, the piece focuses on issues of immigration and national identity. Expect a violin, metallophone, zither, cardboard boxes, political buttons, and shiny shoes. More at http://www.thingny.com/patriots.html.
