“The Priestess of Morphine” informs and pays tribute to Jewish lesbian erotic writer Marie-Madeleine, whose works the Nazis attempted to destroy during World War II. Much of her work was seen as contrary to societal standards on morality, including Sapphic themes and odes to her dependence on morphine. Librettist Aiden K. Feltkamp and Composer Rosśa Crean tell Marie Madeliene’s story through musical and forensic means, bringing an honest and unconventional look at this indomitable woman’s life and art.

Chicago | Autism Advocacy Series Chicago Premiere

Anderson Chapel, North Park University, 5149 N. Spaulding Avenue, Chicago, IL 60625

The Autism Advocacy Series amplifies the voices of individuals who have autism and are primarily nonverbal through the commission and creation of brand-new art song (music for voice and piano). This groundbreaking initiative is coming to Chicago for the first time in 2020, after three years of successful world premiere events in Cincinnati, OH.

All composers this year are based in Chicago!

Rosśa Crean, Meg Huskin, and Ben Krause composed settings of texts written by: Nina Szabo, age 10 Emily Friend, age 10 Aarush Srivastava, age 15 Darren Stella, age 19

All these youth have autism and are primarily nonverbal/nonspeaking. They communicate by spelling out their thoughts on a letterboard or iPad in a process known as the Rapid Prompting Method.

Come hear their powerful words amplified through our composers' beautiful settings of their poetry!

Performers for this concert are: Olivia Skaff, soprano Emma Smart, mezzo-soprano Nick Ward, baritone Christina Giuca Krause, piano
