Upcoming concerts (October-December)
Lots of stuff, hope to see you at something ---
Wednesday October 3rd at David Friend Recital Hall at Berklee (Boston)
Premiering a new set of trios written by Julia Werntz! Alongside Rose Hegele and Mara Goldberg, these microtonal vocal trios are based on ancient Greek erotic poems — they’re twisty and delicious :-)
Sunday November 4th at Arts at the Armory (Boston)
Friday November 9th at Cornelia Street Cafe (NYC)
Rose Hegele and I have started a new contemporary vocal duo, PERIDOT, and we’re having our first set of concerts in two cities! This set includes a sweet, ASMR-inspired (!) commission from Dan Reifsteck, a super talented percussionist and composer, and we’re so glad he’s writing for us! We’ll also be singing Kaija Saariaho’s amazing duo, From The Grammar Of Dreams.
Thursday December 6th at Arts at the Armory (Boston)
Saturday December 8th at Spectrum (NYC)
Kyra Davies, fabulous violinist for the Semiosis Quartet, and I will be playing duo sets in Boston and NYC - among works by Jason Eckardt, Ashkan Behzadi, Missy Mazzoli, and Bright Sheng, we’ll be tackling Kate Soper’s epic duo, Cipher - if you haven’t heard this piece, check it out here. This program is gonna be littttttttt!
Friday December 14 in Providence, RI
Sunday December 16 in Providence, RI
I’ll be singing with Verdant Vibes, Rhode Island’s premiere new music ensemble -- works TBA soon!
Amazing Boston-based composer Aaron Jay Myers is writing a piece for me, and I’m absolutely beside myself about it! It’ll be a work for solo voice, Lichens 3, as a part of Aaron’s Lichen series for mixed instrumentation. Check out his Lichens 2 here, performed by violinist Nicole Parks - also a member of the Semiosis Quartet! Lichens 3 will have it’s premiere and many performances through 2019 :-)
That’s it for now — as concerts get closer, I'll post Facebook event pages and whatnot to include concert times. 2019 brings more collaborations with cool artists like Nick Dunston, Ashkan Behzadi, Camila Agosto, Daniel Felsenfeld, and Cullyn Murphy - but more on that later ;) As always, drop me a line if you want to collaborate or chill out or chat!
