SEVEN DEADLY PEARLS shows the musical cosmos of the singer, musician and composer Shara Nova, who is one of the outstanding contemporary pop composers under the name My Brightest Diamond. After studying opera and composition, Nova collaborated with musicians such as Sufjan Stevens, Bryce Dessner and David Byrne, composed a pop opera for baroque orchestra YOU US WE ALL for Kampnagel's 2013 Summer Festival, and released four albums as My Brightest Diamond crossing borders between chamber music and indie rock. Her fifth album “A Million And One” is to be released in 2018. In Hamburg, Shara Nova now shows her full orchestral greatness: Together with the Aarhus Symphony Orchestra, she performs as a vocalist Kurt Weill's satirical ballet SEVEN DEADLY SINS and newly orchestrated My Brightest Diamond songs. In addition, Sarah Kirkland Snider's SOMETHING FOR THE DARK is an orchestral work by an American composer with whom Shara Nova has a close working relationship, and whose piece is a contrapuntal meditation on hope in troubled times, showing how exciting orchestral music in the world 21st century can sound even for pop music affine ears.

This concert is a collaboration with the Aarhus Symphony Orchestra and the Aarhus Festival (where this evening will be shown on August 31 and September 1) and is one of four co-operation concerts with the Elbphilharmonie Summer program. For these four concerts there will be two pre-sales through Kampnagel's webshop at the end of April and after the release of the entire summer festival program in mid-June. The exact pre-sale dates will be announced in advance in the Kampnagel Newsletter (Registration HERE).
