The opening of Above The Noise, nine voices sing at once, invested in their individual experiences -- creating cacophony before giving way to a recitative for the trio. The latter half of the overture is inspired by Alvin Lucier’s work “Performing Emily”

Performed by Sopranos Cassie Willson, Daphne Gampel and Molly Bogin; Altos Alex O'Shea, Imani Russell and Rose Stoller; Tenor Wenxuan Xue; and Baritones Kenyon Duncan and Xander Browne. Percussion by Becket Cerny and Kevin Garcia with bassist Daniel Durst and guitarist Chris Peters.
