Art in the Open performance at Beaconsfield

Composer Gerard Luther ClarkesArt in the Open will be presenting SOFT SNOW at Beaconsfield’s The Carriage House as part of their festival this summer on August 26. SOFT SNOW is an immersive video projection and musical performance based on the original contemporary classical musical score by Gerard Luther Clarkes. It is a piece for three voices, a piano and a flute. The piece takes inspiration from the poem “John Brown’s Body” by Stephen Vincent Benet. Andrea Ellis of the choral group Sirens is directing the music, while Gerard’s daughter Millefiore Clarkes has created a visual landscape that will frame the experience. The performers are Andrea Ellis (piano), Kelsea McLean (soprano), Shannon Scales (soprano), Suzanne Campbell (mezzo soprano), Sam Lantz (flute).

This will be the third time that Art in the Open will showcase a collaboration of this father and daughter duo—composer and filmmaker. “It’s interesting to see where the lines of inspiration from my own work can be drawn back to my father’s vast and multi-faceted body of work. Working collaboratively formalizes that already existing relationship” says Mille.

The performances will run three times throughout the festival and last fifteen minutes each.
