A Fond Farewell

A Fond Farewell is a collaboration between Third Angle New Music and Hand2Mouth Theatre that reimagines the music of singer-songwriter Elliott Smith as a staged suite of classical art-songs performed by a chamber ensemble and six singers. Six nationally lauded composers will be commissioned to compose 15 new works of music inspired by songs written by Smith. The suite of music will be recorded for commercial release.

The performances will take place April 12 & 13, 2018, at Alberta Rose Theatre. The staging will be directed by the creative team at Hand2Mouth Theatre, led by artistic director Jonathan Walters.
