Parlour Room Sessions: Kristin Leitterman and Steve Mann: Leela Out of Darkness

Saturday October 13, 2018 @ 5:00 pm


Soprano and oboist Kristin Leitterman and pianist Steve Mann present newly commissioned works by Whitney George, Michael-Thomas Foumai, and Scott Rumsey, all drawing from Leela, the Divine Play that causes bodies to take incarnation, to forget our interconnection, that returns cycles of breath to the atmosphere.

This forty-five minute performance piece will draw the audience from darkness and into the light we all have before us. The compositions will include writing for soprano, oboe, oboe d’amore, English horn, and piano, as well as include multi-media. Never before have composers explored the complex, almost vocal, timbres of oboes, combined with the human voice. Especially, with this unique palette being utilized by the same performer. 


Parlour room (n), from French parler (to talk or speak) – a room for conversation, debate, or receiving an audience

Classical music has traditionally been an intimate experience, a gathering of friends as a way to pass an evening filled with laughter, entertaining stories, and captivating sounds. We welcome you into our parlour room at the Brooklyn Conservatory of Music to learn about new and classic works and indulge in the intimacy of great music making. Bring your curiosity!

All concerts begin at 5pm and include a complimentary reception.
