Name: Were You There: Rolston String Quartet and Davóne Tines
Date: July 6, 2018
Time: 7:30 PM - 10:00 PM EDT
Davóne Tines
Event Description:
One of the world’s most heralded young singers, the charismatic, genre-bending bass-baritone Davóne Tines has quickly become a compelling and much sought-after vocalist. The thirty-year-old singer has already collaborated with many of the world’s finest new music composers including John Adams, Kaija Saariaho and Matthew Aucoin, and has cemented his status as a musical artist of uncommon depth and astonishing power.

The second half of the program is entitled “Were You There” and is a set of theatrically staged songs, ranging from Spirituals to a new piece composed by Matthew Aucoin, resulting in a climactic Amazing Grace. Were You There is about moving from darkness to light. It’s both a memorial for death and a celebration of life—it’s about how our voices can lift us up and serve to remember.
