I’ll be giving a presentation on my music tomorrow, June 26th, at the Imani Winds Chamber Music Festival, held at the Mannes School of Music at The New School. Imani Winds is a superb quintet that presents this festival (now in its sixth year) as a means to offer both performance coaching and career guidance for young players. Emerging composers participating get to write for the talented instrumentalists at the festival. While the composers will be working on instrumental pieces, I will offer something of a contrast by speaking about my vocal music, including excerpts from Holy the Firm, Songs for Adam, and Mass for the Day of St. Thomas Didymus.
Here’s the Imani Winds playing Wayne Shorter’s Terra Incognita:
