“Astronautica – Voices of Women in Space” is a newly commissioned work of music, voice, and video by women composers, has a libretto drawn from the words of the women who have traveled in outer space and seen our world from a dramatic new perspective. Created by the Trio Triumphatrix – Lindsay Kesselman, Hai- Ting Chinn, and Kirsten Sollek – “Astronautica” is an artistic evocation of the transformation that happens when one sees our small planet set against the endless blackness of space. Without borders. Without the artificial boundaries and that divide – and could well destroy – humankind.
Voices of Ascension is launching a new artistic initiative for next season: Voices of The New. It will be a series of performances dedicated to exploring new horizons of chamber and vocal ensemble music. Voices of The New will expand and enrich Voices of Ascension’s regular concert series in the 2019-2020 season.
