"Potions, Poisons and Passion's Prescriptions led by Maestro Jason C. Tramm will be broadcast live via web stream at 7PM on January 29th from New York's National Opera Center. The program featuring dramatic soprano Christina Major and Tenor Alok Kumar accompanied by concert pianist Michael Fennelly will launch the 2014 season of New York's Arts and Sciences Salon.
Tramm, Artistic Director of the MidAtlantic Opera and Music Director for the venerable Ocean Grove CMA Summer Festival will present arias and duets celebrating grand opera's comedic, compelling and often poignant scenes pivoting about the phenomena of "stage chemistry and pharmacological intervention."
Tramm, who serves on the faculty at Seton Hall University will introduce Norwegian lyricist, composer and educator Oded Ben-Horin whose work explores the link between science and music. Ben-Horin leads the European Union's six nation program, Write a Science Opera (WASO) and coordinates the EU's "Implementing Creative Strategies into Science Teaching (CREAT-IT.)"
