Herding Cats - Herding Cats by Lucinda Coxon (The Danish Girl) is a chillingly funny play about a generation negotiating intimacy and independence in the 21st century. Meeting the demands of modern life is as impossible as herding cats for Justine, Michael and Saddo. To deal with work, Justine talks - a little too much - to her roommate Michael who earns a living by chatting with strangers like Saddo. But all three will soon find that in a cold, disconnected world, words may not be enough. Directed by Anthony Banks (The Girl on the Train, West End), this groundbreaking revival of Coxon's "brave, brutal" (Guardian) play uses the technical feats that adventurous theater artists have discovered during the pandemic and combines them with the raw intimacy of in-person performance. This first-of-its-kind, transcontinental event features two actors performing for an in-person audience on Soho Theatre's London stage with a third actor performing live via video from New York. The production, simultaneously accessible online to audiences across the globe via Stellar and in-person in London via Soho Theatre, marks a new type of international collaboration. click here

Award-Winning iSing Silicon Valley Girlchoir Spring Concert Choosing Harmony - Choosing Harmony features 250 iSing girls joined by the St. Lawrence String Quartet, Amaranth Quartet, and other guest artists. Choosing Harmony is the virtual concert premiere of iSing's first multimedia (and first entirely digital) commission: Drift, with music by Daniel Wohl (renowned for his "electroacoustic musical sorcery" said NPR Music) and video by Máni M. Sigfússon (known for his genre-bending work with the Rolling Stones and Ólafur Arnalds). Commissioned in response to the breath-defying challenges we have all faced in in the past year, Drift offers each viewer/listener the opportunity for unique individual experience. Other highlights include a pop video style performance of composer Katerina Gimon's Fire, joyous works by Baroque masters Charpentier and Vivaldi, and treble choir versions of A-Tisket, A-Tasket, When I Take My Sugar to Tea, and other popular songs. At the beginning of the season, iSing provided every girl slated for remote learning with a high-quality microphone for rehearsal and recording. In preparation for Choosing Harmony, all singers will have spent more than 300 hours in Zoom classes to craft 1,135 measures of music.

Telegraph Quartet Performs Virtual Concert Presented by Music in Corrales - Beginning on Saturday, May 22, 2021 the Telegraph Quartet (Eric Chin and Joseph Maile, violins; Pei-Ling Lin, viola; Jeremiah Shaw, cello) is presented in a virtual performance by Music in Corrales. Tickets to access the performance are $15, available at www.musicincorrales.org/concert/telegraph-quartet. Registrants will be sent a private YouTube link to watch the performance and the video will remain online to watch through Sunday, May 30, 2021. There will be a separate 1-hour Q&A session via Zoom for ticket holders on Saturday, May 22 at 7:30pm MDT with members of the quartet. The quartet's program includes Beethoven's String Quartet No. 1 in F Major, Op. 18, No. 1 and Brahms' String Quartet No. 2 in A minor, Op. 51. Joseph Maile of the Telegraph Quartet says, "Both of these works represent each composer's first public foray into the string quartet medium. Beethoven's Op. 18 No. 1 is his ambitious, if slightly delayed, entry into the quartet medium as the vanguard of his set of six quartets. And Brahms' wistful second string quartet is one of his two final products, of numerous discarded attempts - most likely with Beethoven metaphorically looking over his shoulder." click here

Capricorn 29 - On the eve of her 29th birthday, a Very Online millennial stumbles upon a curious conspiracy theory: the powers-that-be have initiated a new capitalist plot to eliminate unsuccessful 30 year olds. What sounds at first like the byproduct of someone watching too many dystopian films from the 1970s quickly proves harder to dismiss. And as the countdown to 30 begins, surviving and saving a generation may be the opportunity one young-ish adult needs to finally fulfill her rapidly fading potential. Unfolding in the form of a hallucinatory YouTube wormhole, CAPRICORN 29 is a micro movie musical that wrestles with the tyranny of age-based milestones. click here

This American Wife - Double taps, lip syncs, GIFs: To be online is, in many ways, to be a fan. But "fan," derived from "fanaticus" meaning "insanely but divinely inspired," does not begin to describe the obsessive compulsions of the most devoted followers of The Real Housewives. This American Wife is the newest experiment in live internet theater from Fake Friends (Circle Jerk). Chasing their not-so-guilty pleasure, Jakeem, Patrick, and Michael fall down a rabbit hole into a hauntingly glamorous mansion, where they binge on fake lemons, alligator purses, and crocodile tears. Much more than a tribute to the television franchise, this absurd fantasia on national memes blends improvisation and multi-camera cinematography in a site-specific (and self-specific) live stream. click here

Neave Trio - The Boston-based Neave Trio returns - virtually - to The Center for Arts in Natick (TCAN) for an online concert. This special streamed performance of Neave Trio, recorded at TCAN, will premiere on TCAN's Youtube Channel - https://www.youtube.com/user/natickarts. It is free and will remain available until May 30, 2021. Donations are encouraged. Neave Trio's program includes Clara Schumann's Piano Trio in G minor, Op. 17; and Astor Piazzolla's The Four Seasons of Buenos Aires. Clara Schumann's Piano Trio in G minor, Op. 17 is widely regarded as one of her best-known compositions. It was written after she endured a great personal loss and is full of heartfelt melodies and beautiful harmonies. You can hear her brilliant pianism, and arguably, musical inspiration that she provided to some of her famous male composer contemporaries. Lili Boulanger, noted by Gabriel Fauré as an incredible prodigy, was the first woman to win the Prix de Rome (1913). D'un matin de printemps is full of character and joy, though it was the last work she wrote before her death at the very young age of 24. Neave Trio recorded Piazzolla's The Four Seasons of Buenos Aires on its November 2018 album, Celebrating Piazzolla (Azica Records), which captures Piazzolla's rich legacy through arrangements by one of the composer's long time colleagues, José Bragato and by a younger protégé, Leonardo Suárez Paz. Gramophone describes their recording as "thrilling," having "wild energy," and "electrifying," while Classics Today writes, "the energetic edginess, the snap, the rhythm sound convincing, totally invigorating, and authentic." click here
