    PERFORMANCE DESCRIPTION
    Joshua Roman is a solo cellist, accomplished composer, and curator whose performances embrace musical styles from Bach to Radiohead. Roman was named a TED Senior Fellow in 2015 and is currently the Las Vegas Philharmonic’s inaugural artist-in-residence. Before setting off on his unique path as a soloist, Roman was the Seattle Symphony’s principal cellist—a job he won at 22. He has since earned renown for genre-bending repertoire and wide-ranging collaborations. His performance of the complete "Six Suites for Solo Cello" by J.S. Bach on TED's Facebook Page garnered 980,000 live viewers, with millions more for his Main Stage TED Talks/Performances. This included an improvisational performance with Tony-winner/MacArthur Genius, Bill T. Jones and East African vocalist Somi.

    This performance is part of the Davis Guest Artist Series in Partnership with the Birmingham Chamber Music Society.

    A World Premiere Musical
    Book, Lyrics, and Music by Ryan Scott Oliver, 2023 Kleban Prize Recipient

    After a devastating succession of crushing hurricanes, the leadership have determined that life on the island of Haverness is no longer sustainable and they must abandon it immediately. All the adults, small children, and the elderly have hurriedly evacuated Haverness to acquire new homes, new jobs, and set up new lives on the mainland, leaving behind a small collection of young adult volunteers to finish handling the abandonment. Widow Clack lives an exiled life running a lighthouse with her brother on the storm-crushed island. When a young man is found dead on the beach, the remaining collection of young adults combust into dangerous accusations leading to devastating division. Once a final, unexpected storm impacts the island, can Widow save the villagers from themselves? This production is part of the Michael J. and Mary Anne Freeman Theatre and Dance Series
