Liebe und Traüme

Perception

Our second concert had Emiri performing a Chopin Prelude and Rachmaninov's “Elegie,” reflecting upon death and loss. Next, Kendall was joined with UM Fellows Misty Drake and Omar Macias, as well as Greater Miami Youth Symphony's Manager, Michelle Sanchez, to premiere a commissioned quartet written by UM Alumna, Melissa D’Albora. Melissa spoke about her composition, “Perception of Sound,” and how she used extended techniques to express the suffering of the human condition while illustrating how anxiety can uncontrollably emerge to produce disorders such as Trichotillomania. Finally, Rebecca portrayed Charlotte Rowland in the monoopera “Before Breakfast” by Thomas Pasatieri. Charlotte, a depressed and alcoholic wife, is plagued by what her life might have been had she not gotten pregnant and forced into a struggling marriage. Light refreshments were offered as Gaby Torres, a professional therapist, led a discussion around healthy coping strategies and mental health tools.
