Press release:

This Sunday, Chamber Music at the Scarab Club will premiere a new mixed media chamber opera, Pat & Emilia, based on the lives of two artists—photographer Pat Sturn (1910-2011) and opera singer Emilia Cundari (1930-2005, MG ’53 and Marygrove professor).

Like the complex layers of a mixed media art piece, Pat & Emilia is a celebration of European opera, new contemporary music, prose, journalism, photography, and the experiences of women. Act One, created by Marygrove professor Tara Sievers-Hunt, features opera arias from Emilia’s repertoire alongside monologues inspired by newspaper interviews given by the singer in 1950’s-1970’s. Act Two showcases new music by Canadian composer Jeff Smallman with text by Windsor Poet Laureate, Marty Gervais. Project director and Marygrove College music professor, Tara Sievers-Hunt will appear as Emilia, while Oakland University lecturer and contemporary soprano, Jocelyn Zelasko will perform the role of Pat. A short documentary about the project, Imagining Angels has been created by Canadian Arts Productions, which premiered at the Windsor International Film Festival in November, and will again be shown at the Toronto Short Film Festival in March.

Pat & Emilia will premiere at the Willistead Manor in Windsor on Friday, March 13, 2015 at 7:30pm, followed by its American debut at Marygrove College on Sunday, March 15, 2015 at 3:00pm.
