ArtWorks@TheDJD is a world premier virtual performance series available at djdtheater.com. Musician Hellen Weberpal’s piece is the first in a three-part series of trailblazing short films that blend music, dance, poetry, and art.
ArtWorks@TheDJD – an artist grant program provided by the Dorothy Jemison Day (DJD) Theater. Hellen Weberpal’s piece “Suite for Solo Cello – Alabama Climbs” is the first in a three-part series.
ArtWorks@TheDJD presents three free cutting edge works by Birmingham, AL artists amidst the global pandemic. The works will each be available for one week on the DJD website: www.djdtheater.com.
This week’s work, “Suite for Solo Cello – Alabama Climbs,” is by Hellen Weberpal. Hellen Weberpal is a cellist with the Alabama Symphony Orchestra and Cahaba River Strings and has cultivated a passion for rock climbing in her free time. Weberpal says, “as a professional cellist with a love for climbing, I wanted to compose solo cello movements inspired by the movements of a climber. Interpreting the emotions going through the climber’s mind during an ascend, and the shapes of the Alabama rock formations themselves, into a musical composition.”
