Ensemble in Process… makes its NYC debut, as it welcomes back the Marsyas Trio all the way from other side of the pond, with a collaboration of Peridot Duo’s emerging vocalist Rose Hegele. As this concert is a curation of emerging and established composers solely from the UK and the US, "Bridge the GAP” will feature works by LJ White, Meredith Monk, Georgia Rodgers, Hilary Tann, Missy Mazzoli, Freya Waley-Cohen, Erin Gee, and yours truly. In addition, there will be video installation created for Meredith Monk’s solo piano piece “Railroad Song”, and my 2015 composition Lucid Dreaming (originally commissioned by the Marsyas Trio).
Harlem (A Dream Deferred), an art song based on the text by Langston Hughes, will have its world premiere by the Astoria Music Project, as past of its first commission concert. This program will present premieres of works written by NYC-based composers David Bridges, Rachel DeVore Fogarty, and yours, truly. These new works will be paired with our original theatre concept piece, "Love (un)Sought," featuring Amy Frey & Thomas Anawalt, directed by Taryne Kellogg. For more information, click here.
