A project very dear to my heart I started last February with soprano Carli Miller to interweave classical music, vocal performance and the aerial arts. We wanted to tell a story about loss, grief, and the redemptive power of love. Aber combines "Ihr habt nun Traurigkeit" from Ein deutches Requiem bbt Brahms, newly arranged for soprano and guitar by Nathan Siler with aerial silks and film. In the process of creating Aber, Caroline lost her grandmother. This piece and this partnership were there to catch her. I am so grateful for this, her, and the amazing team we worked with, Matthew James Miller, Mary Cloud, and Elizabeth van Os.
