Happy New Year, y’all! 2019 is off to a great start with some reeeeeeeeeally cool concerts - check ‘em out!
Upcoming concerts (January-April)
February 3rd at Clark University (Worcester, MA)
March 26th at the Lilypad (Cambridge, MA)
I’ll be performing and teaching in a residency graciously hosted by Clark University - singing works in concert including Julia Werntz’s Kaspoleo Melea for vocal trio and Kate Soper’s Songs for Nobody. Joining forces with Rose Hegele and Katherine Growden. We’ll also be performing this concert set at the Lilypad as part of the Zero Point One Percent (improvised series curated by Pandelis Karayorgis and Eric Rosenthal)
February 22nd at ShapeShifter Lab (Brooklyn, NY)
In preparation for April 7th (see below!), I'm performing Aperghis' Recitations at ShapeShifter Lab in NYC --- Facebook link here. I want to get this piece picked up in a few more cities as well, so anyone or any venues out there who want to host, give me a shout!
Sunday April 7th at Third Life Studio (Somerville, MA)
This year I was awarded a grant from the Puffin Foundation to present a performance that advocates for social change. On April 7th in Boston, MA, Laila Franklin and I will present Recitations in Movement, a collaborative performance that seeks to express the many facets and sufferings of domestic abuse victims through the interaction between movement and voice. Proceeds for this performance will be donated to Rosie's Place - a shelter for poor and homeless women. This event will also be available via livestream! Check out more details on this project in the link here, and I hope you are able to check out our finished product!
Friday April 12th, Inner Space (Brookline, MA)
Crossing a piece off of my bucket list, I'll be performing the entirety of Kate Soper's IPSA DIXIT with Equilibrium Ensemble as part of the Original Gravity Concert Series! This concert is definitely something you don't want to miss - plus, it'll be paired with several beers from local breweries!
Friday April 26th at Gallery 263 (Cambridge, MA)
Peridot will be performing another set of crazy vocal duos, including works by Carolyn Chen, Aaron Jay Myers, and Chaya Czernowin’s Manoalchadia for two voices and bass flute (played by Sho Kato). We can’t wait to share this with you all!
Aaron Jay Myers wrote me a piece and IT IS MAGNIFICENT! It is a work for solo voice, Lichens 3, as a part of Aaron’s Lichen series for mixed instrumentation. I’m so excited to dig into this work (all eight movements of it!) and perform the work many times through summer and fall of 2019 - stay tuned!
I’ve recently joined the roster of Remus Artists, an agency for contemporary classical musicians - so exciting to take this next step in my career, and I look forward to pursuing more projects with this agency’s support and encouragement. Check out their roster of awesome new music peeps!
That’s all for now - cheers to a great new year, everyone, and hope to see you soon! Xoxo, Stephanie
