Join us for a Masterclass conversation-performance hosted by vocalist Helga Davis and National Sawdust co-founder Paola Prestini who will be joined by composer, singer, bandleader and recording artist Ted Hearne to discuss the first workshop showing of his new multimedia piece Agnes in the Graveyard.
Acclaimed for making audacious, politically acute music for our time that traverses boundaries of style and discipline, composer and singer Ted Hearne has been heralded for producing “some of the most expressive socially engaged music in recent memory” (Pitchfork).
