Emily Thorner, November 8-12, 2022

NC NewMusic Initiative kicks off its 23rd season with a Guest Artist Residency by “ultra-soprano” Emily Thorner, who is rapidly making her mark as a soloist in contemporary music ensembles, orchestras, and modern opera. Known for her command of stratospheric high notes, Ms. Thorner is highly sought-after for world premieres due to her unusual range and fearless virtuosity.

On Thursday, November 10, Ms. Thorner will present her latest project, STATE OF BEING: a touring concert experience for one vocalist (and electronics) featuring commissions specifically for her unique voice by a multi-national lineup of contemporary/living composers.

In addition to the concert, Ms. Thorner will engage with our music students through as series of master classes, career seminars, and a composition reading session/ workshop featuring music by ECU student composers, written specifically for this occasion. See full Schedule of Events below.

We hope you will join us in person, or online at youtube.com/ecuschoolofmusiclive!
