Birds in this Woman (World Premiere)

About the Music

Willamette’s chamber orchestra, now in its second year, presents the WORLD PREMIERE of Robert Nelson’s “Birds in This Woman.” Featuring soprano Laura Agüero, this song-cycle springs from a text by former Oregon Poet Laureate Elizabeth Woody, member of the Confederated Tribes of Warm Springs. The evening of music is completed with Manuel de Falla’s “El Amor Brujo” suite and Beethoven’s eternal classic, “The Ruins of Athens.”

Pre-Show Discussion

There is a special FREE pre-show discussion with Robert Nelson and Elizabeth Woody which takes place at 2 p.m., and runs 45 minutes. If you wish to attend the pre-show discussion please arrive at 1:45 p.m.
