About

The return of The Tune In Festival will feature more than 30 artists and ensembles over four days, coming together to pay respect to the time-honored tradition of music and poetry as sources of resilience, protest and inspiration. Curated by performance poet J. Ivy and pianist Lisa Kaplan in close collaboration with CAP UCLA Creative Advisor Kristy Edmunds. 


For the festival, Jennifer created a music flm for experimental violin duo The Furies. Confronting humanity's impact on the climate and our place in the universe, The Furies's piece for the Tune In Festival is a meditation on the arc of history, from the primal dawn of civilization to an uncertain future.

About

Cal State San Bernardino Opera Theatre director Stacey Fraser will produce and direct back-to-back performances of Robert Xavier Rodriguez’s compositions Monkey See Monkey Do and Tango on Friday, May 12, and Saturday, May 13.

 

Both performances will begin at 7:30 p.m. in the CSUSB Performing Arts Building Recital Hall. Tickets for the show are $15 for general admission; $12 for senior citizens, CSUSB faculty and staff; and $8 for students.

 

The first performance, Monkey See Monkey Do, is a children’s opera based on a Mexican folktale, and features music that integrates both the European aesthetic and the traditional folk music of Mexico. In the spotlight will be CSUSB opera theatre students and San Francisco-based guest soprano, Morgan Harrington.

 

Tango is a one-act comic concert opera for tenor solo and chamber ensemble and also integrates a confluence of musical cultures: that of the Argentinian tango tradition as well as the European operatic tradition. The piece will showcase professional dancers Faith Jensen-Ismay and Robby Johnson of the critically acclaimed San Diego-based dance company, Mojalet Dance Collective.

  

Performances will be held on May 12, 13, 14 @ 7:30pm

 

Tickets: $15 General / $12 Senior / $8 Student
