First Fridays at ICA Miami ft. “Uprising” by IlluminArts
ICA Miami and IlluminArts present Uprising, a musical exploration inspired by Paulo Nazareth’s first solo US museum exhibition, “Melee,” at ICA Miami. Featuring music of Brazilian composers Hector Villa-Lobos, Francisco Mignone and Chico Buarque, along with music by Native American composer Jerod Impichchaachaaha’ Tate and others, this non-traditional performance experience will by one you don’t want to miss. IlluminArts welcomes back pianist and arranger Mary Adelyn Kauffman, baritone Jorell Williams (previously seen in the 2017 performance, The Dandy Lion Roars), and “show-stealing” (New York Times) soprano, Melissa Wimbish to lead the ensemble in this musical uprising.
IlluminArts is Miami’s Art Song and Vocal Chamber Music Series, collaborating with museums and galleries to present site-specific performances of music inspired by the current exhibitions of visual art.
