Pretty eye-catching flyer, no? Come hear Lily Arbisser sing “…That Passeth All Understanding”, “Every Day is a God” and “Deathbeds” from my cycle Holy the Firm, with pianist Jason Wirth. I’ve previously heard them perform parts of H the F splendidly, looking forward to this.
This coming Sunday, pianist Jason Wirth will be holding a soirée at his home studio. It’s a program of contemporary song and will include soprano Lily Arbisser (pictured) doing four of the five songs from my Holy the Firm. This takes place Sunday, Nov. 26 at 6 pm. The address is 101 W. 143rd St. Apt. 20, in Manhattan. A nice coincidence: Lily was a student of Susan Stewart at Princeton, and Susan is the author of “Cinder”, one of the poems I set in Holy the Firm.
Go here for the live stream of the event.
