Can a statue of Venus come alive? Can a vagabond find a travel companion? SIGN & SING's Explorations examines three stories of love and travel, reimagining great works of classical music in sung English and American Sign Language (ASL). These works - Heggie and McNally's "At the Statue of Venus," Vaughan Williams and Stevenson's "Songs of Travel," and Elgar's "Sea Pictures" - will be performed on Sunday, May 21, 2017 at 3pm at Symphony Space. A post-show meet-and-greet will occur at Bar Thalia.
Open captions and Jacoti-Lola assisted listening devices will be provided.
