Fellow Travelers

17 musicians, mostly members of the Lyric Opera Orchestra, performed in a Lyric Unlimited production of Gregory Spears’ Fellow Travelers at the Athenaeum Theater last month. Spears’ remarkable score combined the melismatic style of troubadour singing with minimalist repetitive figures to tell a poignant love story between two men, set during the “ Lavender Scare” of the McCarthy era. Kudos to clarinetist Susan Warner for her beautiful solos and to violinist Pauli Ewing for stepping into the concertmaster chair.
