Exciting January! Lots of performances coming up this month.

The Cornell Glee Club are taking my new choral piece they commissioned Not One Word based on texts by Ryokan on tour throughout the North East, including performances in Albany, Philadelphia, Baltimore, Washington DC, New York, and more. Dates and details.

Several performances of Memory Palace in NYC, including Owen Weaver performing at Cameo Gallery in Brooklyn on January 12, and two staged performances by Ian Rosenbaum at the American Irish History Society in concerts hosted by the Metropolis Ensemble (Jan 23 and 26).

Vicky Chow gives the Boston premiere of Hoyt-Schermerhorn on January 17 at Northeastern University. And a chamber group featuring mezzo Elspeth Davis and Ian Rosenbaum are performing I will learn to love a person in Park Slope in Brooklyn on January 11.

In February, the amazing duo of Rachel Lee Priday and David Kaplan are premiering a brand new fifteen minute Sonata for Violin and Piano on February 6 at Subculture in NYC in a concert presented by the MATA Festival. The amazing Fromm Foundation at Harvard provided the funds to commission the work.

And last but not least, this June sees the premiere of Hand Eye, a new collaborative work that the Sleeping Giant Composer Collective wrote for the ever intrepid eighth blackbird! More on this soon, but here’s a short teaser trailer. My barrage of notes opens the video.
