The Odyssey Storytelling Podcast

Oct 19, 2017

In the first of Odyssey's single-story episodes, travel back almost exactly a year to 2016's "Natural" show, which featured, among others, a story by Elliot Jones, Music Director of the Arizona Repertory Singers. From his Odyssey biography:

Elliot Jones holds degrees from New York University, Indiana University, and the Doctor of Musical Arts in choral conducting from the University of Arizona....He has led performances of a wide variety of repertoire, including many works for chorus and orchestra, such as Mozart’s Requiem, Haydn’s Lord Nelson Mass, Honegger’s King David, and Handel’s Israel in Egypt. He has twice led performances at the National Cathedral in Washington, most recently of Gregorio Allegri’s iconic work, Miserere. A passionate advocate for new music, he conducted the East-Coast premiere of Jake Heggie’s Anna Madrigal Remembers with a text by Armistead Maupin. The Arizona Daily Star and Tucson Weekly have described his ensemble’s performances as “powerful,” “outstanding,” and “chill-inducing.”

This episode was performed and recorded in front of a live audience at the Flandrau Planetarium on October 6th, 2016, and curated by Tony Paniagua. For more information about Odyssey Storytelling, please visit
