If you are not in Chicago

I shouldn’t let all the excitement about the upcoming CSO premiere lead me to neglect mentioning upcoming performances of my Dancepiece by the Da Capo Chamber Players. They will include the piece as part of a program of music by Philadelphia composers, to be given at Merkin Hall in NYC on Tuesday, October 27. They then take the program up to Bard College the next day. Da Capo has been a mainstay on the New York scene for a good long while now. Joan Tower was the original pianist with the group. It now includes a mix of veterans (Andre Emilianoff, Pat Spencer, Curt Macomber) and younger players (Blair McMillen, Meighan Stoops). I last hear them playing a sober and elegant contribution to the memorial service for George Perle earlier this year.
