Sounds of 7: Concert with Guest Soprano Julie Adams
One Found Sound performs an eclectic program of three works for full orchestra including Caroline Shaw's "Entr'acte," Samuel Barber's "Knoxville, Summer of 1915" featuring guest soprano Julie Adams, and Maurice Ravel's Ma mere l'Oye or "Mother Goose Suite."
Like One Found Sound's founders, Adams is herself a graduate of the San Francisco Conservatory of Music where she was awarded the Phyllis C. Wattis Memorial Scholarship. Among her other honors are prizes from the Metropolitan Opera National Council Auditions, the George London Award and the Elizabeth Connell prize. With a voice that is "rich, full and slightly earthy in an expressive way" (The New York Times), Adams has earned coveted roles, performing with the Arizona Opera, Michigan Opera, Opera San Jose and San Francisco Opera. Orchestral engagements include Beethoven's Symphony Number 9 with the Phoenix Symphony, and a concert version of West Side Story with the Oakland Symphony.
For seven years, One Found Sound has been on a mission to return classical music presentations to what co-founder Sarah Bonomo calls "the glory days of boisterous audiences and the thrill of discovering something new with each note." One Found Sound specializes in relaxed, salon-style gatherings located in art galleries, former manufacturing shops, warehouses, gardens and live/work community spaces. Their programming, selected democratically by a vote of all members, includes pieces for full orchestra as well as chamber ensemble, with an eye toward balancing works by well-known and underrepresented composers.
