“Because humans are an expression of the Creative Word, sound has the most potent and immediate effect on us. The ancient rishis of India discovered laws of sound alliance between nature and man. Sound and vibration are the seed thought that forms the universes.”
Alonzo King’s re-envisioned classic Art Songs is set to the stunning voice of Israeli mezzo-soprano Maya Lahyani, the 2010 grand finalist of the Metropolitan Opera National Council Auditions and the recipient of an Adler Fellowship at the San Francisco Opera.
