ABOVE THE NOISE By Daphne Gampel to Premiere At Dixon Place

RONJA THE ROBBERS' DAUGHTER to Have New York Premiere at The Swedish Seamen's Church

Henry Lombino will present a new oratorio: Above the Noise by Daphne Gampel premiering at Dixon Place (161A Chrystie Street) for one performance on December 21 at 7:30pm.

Composed by Daphne Gampel and directed by Ryan Dobrin, this three-act work features nine vocalists in twenty movements of groove-based choral music. With text compiled from interviews, the nine musical narratives reflect a diversity of young adults' experiences carrying on, questioning, deepening, discarding, and daring to distance themselves from the religions of their families at this critical juncture in their lives. Individuals' stories emerge for a moment, then recede, allowing others to take the fore. As the characters come to blend and support one another vocally, the audience will meld into a community that develops awareness of and comfort with their interconnected differences.

Gampel leads the ensemble joined by Sopranos Cassie Willson and Molly Bogin; Altos Alex O'Shea, Imani Russell and Rose Stoller; Tenor Wenxuan Xue; and Baritones Kenyon Duncan and Xander Browne. Becket Cerny and Kevin Garcia comprise the percussion duo with bassist Daniel Durst and guitarist Chris Peters.

This production of Above the Noise is brought to life by assistant music director Ian Miller, light designer Sam Driver, sound designer Nicky Young, dramaturg David L. Caruso, and stage manager Emily Bubeck.

Above the Noise was originally developed by Gampel with Ramsay Burgess and is produced by Henry Lombino with Immi Chaudhry.

Tickets range from $15-$20 and are available online here and 30 minutes before the show. In the event of a sold out show, a waitlist will also be available 30 minutes before the show. The Dixon Place Lounge is open before, during, and after the show. Bar proceeds directly support DP's artists and mission
