    Rhiannon Giddens Joins Amanda Palmer, Neil Gaiman to Create "Art Is Alive" COVID-19 Resource Guide

    Rhiannon Giddens has joined with musician Amanda Palmer and author Neil Gaiman to create Art Is Alive, a new online resource guide to support artistic and creative freelance communities whose livelihoods have been so greatly impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic.

    "There have been thousands of crowdfunding links, GoFundMes, Patreons, and other fundraising efforts flying around to help artists who are slipping, and it can all get very overwhelming for an artist seeking help, or for a generous donor who wants to support," says the group. "We are hoping that this website can act as a kind of general yellow pages for the current money emergency in the art and music world. We like to call it our COVID-19 directory of give and take."

    Art Is Alive also offers a place for artists to interact, to share information as new events, new resources, and new ideas develop. There is also a newsletter that will offer updates alongside personal stories, experiences, and words of hope from artists, musicians, writers, and more.

    Composer Caroline Shaw's new album, Narrow Sea, featuring Sō Percussion, Dawn Upshaw, and Gilbert Kalish's performance of the title piece—five parts, each a new setting of a text from The Sacred Harp, the 19th-century collection of shape-note hymns—is due next Friday, January 22, on Nonesuch. Here, the artists talk with writer Matthew Guerrieri about the album, which also includes Sō Percussion's performance of Shaw's Taxidermy. Find out why she tells Guerrieri: "I was telling a friend, half-jokingly, that, in a lot of my music, I’m trying to figure out a way to talk about death and mortality, or think about it."

    Composer Adam Guettel's theatrical song cycle Myths and Hymns, the recording of which was released on Nonesuch in 1999, is the central project of MasterVoices' 2020–21 season. In an online staging conceived by the ensemble's Artist Director, Ted Sperling—the music director of the original Nonesuch recording—new short musical films will illustrate the protagonist’s exploration of Flight, Work, Love, and Faith over twenty-three episodes. The first chapter—featuring dozens of artists, including Julia Bullock, Renée Fleming, Norm Lewis, Joshua Henry, José Llana, and Kelli O'Hara—premiered last night and can be seen here. The three subsequent chapters will stream on February 24, April 14, and May 26.
