The famed fidelity of Homer's Penelope doesn't stop at the literary level. It's made its way into the equally trustworthy songwriting prowess of composer Sarah Kirkland Snider, whose song cycle Penelope is a spellbinding orchestral storybook based on The Odyssey. Performed with the distinctly acrobatic vocals of My Brightest Diamond's Shara Worden, Penelope is an audacious, sweeping soundscape, punctuated by contemporary slants on the classic epic, specifically on gorgeous tracks like "This Is What You're Like." Accompanying Worden for tonight's special event is Portland's own Fear No Music, one of the city's more ambitious musical ensembles. This will likely be totally amazing. RYAN J. PRADO
