New Concert: “Rencontres Poétiques” with Composer Christina Goh at the Museum of Science, Boston on April 13th






Greetings everyone and hoping this message finds you safe and well! <3 Posting today with some exciting news: Mary will be teaming up with the incredible French composer Christina Goh and the fantastic Museum of Science, Boston for an evening of poetry, music, and larger-than-life visuals in the Mugar Omni Theatre on Wednesday, April 13th! Bringing their international collaboration to Boston for the first time (they performed in Tours, France last year as part of Christina’s beautiful “Ut Fortis” concert), Mary and Christina will perform musical settings they’ve composed for famous poems in both French and English, including a world premiere from each composer. Inspired by the works of Yves Bonnefoy, Honoré de Balzac, Emily Dickinson, Phillis Wheatley, Marceline Desbordes-Valmore, Edgar Allan Poe, and more; each song will be set to original, immersive visuals developed specifically by the Museum’s award-winning artistic team for the Omni screen.


(This may also be a good time to let everyone know that Mary’s been studying French since June, and will be singing [and speaking!] a bit of French during the concert – be sure to attend to see how she fares! ;))
