Times Like These Streaming Tonight

I just got word from pianist Yien Wang that the performance of my Times Like These that she and Lisa Oberlander will be giving tonight will be streamed live. Their recital starts at 7:30 pm, (EDST), and my piece is the second on the program. Go here for the stream, and here for more about the performance and about the piece.

Times Like These in Georgia

I want to remind you of the performance of my Times Like These in Georgia this week. Clarinetist Lisa Oberlander is joined by pianist Yien Wang in performing the piece that was commissioned by Jean Kopperud for her “Extreme Measures” project, and subsequently recorded by her and Steve Gosling for Albany. Lisa’s program is on September 6 at Legacy Hall, RiverCenter for the Performing Arts, Schwob School of Music, Columbus State University, Columbus GA.

And closer to home, The Crossing will do spiralling ecstatically, a setting of an e.e. cummings poem for a cappella chorus, at their Christmas concert:
Sunday, December 23, 8:00 pm
St. Paul’s Episcopal Church
Philadelphia, PA
The piece originated in a setting I wrote for the choir of the Catholic Campus Ministry at Columbia University some decades ago. I subsequently re-wrote the piece for Emmanuel Church in Boston, where it was done most recently at the installation of their pastor, Pamela Werntz.
Congratulations to The Crossing’s conductor, Donald Nally, who recently joined the faculty of Northwestern.
