Laura Ingram Semilian: Echoes from 1800s America
Soprano Laura Ingram Semilian presents a program of excavated echoes from 1800s America, with songs ranging from Appalachia to the American Frontier, the Civil War, and more. Her CD of historical songs, recorded in Nashville with producer/engineer Ron “Snake” Reynolds, will be released this Spring.
An innovative performer with enthusiasm for research and uncommon repertoire, Laura holds the MA in history from Wake Forest University and the MM in opera performance from UNCSA. She won first place in the Southeastern Region's Metropolitan Opera competition. Laura's other recent performance projects include her vocal settings of poetry by Will Alexander and George Quasha, soundscapes for avant-garde films, and programs of works by Hungarian composers and ethnographers Béla Bartók and Zoltán Kodály.
Musicians joining Laura for this performance include Luke Payne, guitar; Jon Cornatzer, banjo; David Crawford, mandolin; and Tim Harrison, bass.
