Seraphic Fire, Frost School launch streaming series

By Lawrence A. Johnson

Patrick Dupré Quigley will launch Seraphic Saturday Podcast on May 2.

As with all classical organizations across the country, Seraphic Fire and the Frost School of Music have cancelled the balance of their seasons due to the Covid-19 shutdown. Yet both organizations, like the New World Symphony,  are now filling the gap with new online streaming series.

UM’s Frost School launched Friday Night @ Frost last month. The streaming series, which presents Frost Music Live events from the 2019-20 season, continues 7:30 p.m. tonight (April 24) with a concert by the Frost Wind Ensemble performing music of John Mackey. On May 1, the series will encore Frost Opera Theater’s acclaimed production of Ravel’s L’enfant et les sortilèges.

Seraphic Fire will also launch a new informal series, Seraphic Saturday Podcast, on May 2.  

“Our audiences are the primary inspiration behind our music-making: their thoughtfulness, their curiosity, their fearlessness in trying new things,” says artistic director Patrick Dupré Quigley, who will host the series. “We want to continue the conversation that we typically have with our constituents, only this time through their headphones rather than in the concert hall.”

Episode 1 “Gamma ut” (the whole gamut) will discuss the early days of Seraphic Fire as well as offering talks, anecdotes and reminiscences with soprano Margot Rood and other singers who are Seraphic Fire regulars. Go to
