LISTENING MIX provides a musical preview for the musicians visiting the Walker. Combining their music with sounds from a variety of contextual sources, LISTENING MIX can be experienced before or after a performance. 

Musician Shara Worden (of band My Brightest Diamond) is the lead vocalist for composer Sarah Kirkland Snider’s song cycle Penelope. String ensemble yMusic will join Worden to perform the Walker co-commission and Midwest debut of Penelope (along with new My Brightest Diamond compositions) at St. Paul’s SPCO Center on February 26 and 27.
Worden, Kirkland Snider, and yMusic blend formal classical and pop influences into dynamic and rich, yet melodically approachable material. The following mix includes other musical groups which do just this, creating works that live on the fringe between “art” song and “pop” song. To bridge this gap, many of the works integrate strong narrative vocal melodies with modern string accompaniments.
