Marigold Opera / Bio

Co-founded and led by composers Nathan Cooke and Matt Schlatter, Marigold Opera is a new force in the burgeoning NYC indie classical scene. Equally influenced by Brahms and The Beatles, their instrumentation is that of an eclectic chamber group helmed by a singer/songwriter. Marigold Opera has a unique, acoustic sound palette featuring biting cello, singing violin, tender horn, atypical percussion, brilliant piano, soaring clarinet, ethereal vibraphone, and simple, yet honest voice. With these sounds they create music that is at the same time elusive and emotionally evocative: a complex sound-scape that mirrors the human condition by exploring themes such as dreams, death, violence, love (or lack thereof), greed, and aimlessness.
