Pleiades | 24
Pleiades | 24 is a video project adapted from a famous collection of twenty-four Baroque tunes which are often assigned as first songs to beginner voice students.
Although most singers regard this collection with a mixture of embarrassment and nostalgia, we believe that the 24 Italian Songs & Arias deserve to be re-considered and re-imagined as a timeless device for telling contemporary women’s stories through both music and film.
Ultimately, this project will include five seasons. At the conclusion of filming this series The Pleiades Project will have showcased the diverse work of 30 female artists, including singers, directors, editors, choreographers, and fine artists.
You are invited to the world premiere of Pleiades | 24 Season 5 on INVISION. Join performers and creators for a panel discussion on the work at 4:30 in the Savada-Stevenson Lounge, then visit the Live Studio at 5:00 for the first-ever viewing of the final films of the series that reimagines the 24 Italian Songs and Arias as a vehicle for telling contemporary women's stories. End your evening by toasting and mingling with the creators in an artist reception back in the lounge.
