Volti performs Pamela Z’s INK

November 19November 20, 2022

ODC Theater
3153 17th Street
San Francisco

The San Francisco Bay Area chamber chorus, Volti, presents the in-person premiere of Pamela Z’s Ink at ODC Theater in San Francisco USA Ink is a work that unfolds in five sonically distinct movements that variously use standard notation, graphic elements, instructions, and rote transmission of sung and spoken vocal material. Speech fragments from interviews with the Volti singers make up a portion of the sonic structure and determine some of the work’s melodic and rhythmic passages. The piece premiered as a streaming video work, designed specifically for the web, on April 24, 2021. This concert will include a re-vamped, live version, as the start of the 2022-2023 season, performed by Volti under the baton of Valerie St. Agathe. Volt will also perform a new work by Pulitzer Prize winner, Caroline Shaw.
