Three Performances in New York

By some happy coincidence, I have three performances in New York this week. In addition to the Prism Quartet and pianist Marilyn Nonken giving the second performance of my Stratigraphy earlier today, soprano Liv Redpath and pianist J. J. Penna will do Holy the Firm in Juilliard’s Paul Hall this coming Tuesday, March 22 at 8 PM. This will be the first performance of the complete cycle in New York City. Go here for an earlier post about Liv. And on Friday, Weekend of Chamber Music will offer my Oboe Quartet, with Peggy Pearson, oboe; Ari Streisfeld (of the JACK Quartet) violin; Kathryn Lockwood, viola; and Caroline Stinson, cello (both Kathryn and Caroline are members of the Lark Quartet) – quite an all-star group. The performance will be at the Tenri Cultural Institute on Friday, March 25 at 7:30 PM, with an encore performance at The Cooperage in Honesdale, PA on Saturday, March 26, also at 7:30. Go here for ticket information and a video from W of CM’s artistic co-directors, Andrew Waggoner and Caroline Stinson.

Juilliard American Songmakers Interview Project

I was interviewed by soprano Liv Redpath as part of a project for a class she took with pianist J. J. Penna at Juilliard earlier this year. The result is posted here. Do look around the site for more interviews, I was honored to be part of a project involving some very fine composers and performers.

Liv is wonderfully gifted, check out her performance at a Renée Fleming master class here.
