Centuries of Sound - Chamber Music for Strings, Piano and Voice
Undaunted by the vocal and theatrical demands of contemporary classical music, Amy Foote has performed everything from leading roles on the operatic stage to world premiers of contemporary chamber music. The SF Chronicle described her voice as “sinuous [and] bright-toned…chasing the melodic lines through all their twitchy variations without missing a turn.” She has performed with the SF Symphony's SoundBox Series, the SF Contemporary Music Players, Friction Quartet, Elevate Ensemble, Composers Inc., and Nonsemble 6, with whom she performed a memorized and staged version of Schoenberg's Pierrot Lunaire. Her solo work is inspired by the purposefulness of liturgical ritual, the stillness of John Cage, and the playfulness of the Fluxus movement.
I love performing contemporary chamber works and contemporary opera. Fiery characters are my favorite! On the other end of the spectrum, I’m a big fan of beautiful art songs- especially Schumann, Faure, Hahn, Copland and Rorem. In the realm of “popular” classical music, I particularly love jazz and popular music/ musical theater from the 1930s and 40s.
