This one-of-a-kind Schubert Club Mix concert will feature pieces which local composer Libby Larsen (recently recognized as the 2016 McKnight Distinguished Artist) has written as companion music to comic strip cartoons and other visual media.

This unique performance will feature comics brought to life by Libby Larsen, Christina Baldwin, Paul Phoenix, and Aaron Engebreth (with Sonja Thompson, Maureen Nelson, Eunice Kim, Hyobi Sim, Stephen Fang, and Zach Cohen).

The program includes “The Fantom of the Fair” which illustrates a story of the superhero in action at the World’s Fair, “The Peculiar Case of Dr. H.H. Holmes” for baritone & prepared piano with projected drawings, and “Love Tamer” with reconstructed comic strip illustrations. It also features a new piece with lighting design “O Magnum Mysterium” for former King’s Singers member Paul Phoenix.
