First off, this Sunday I will be performing with one of my favorite new music bands, Alarm Will Sound. Although I’ve known these folks for many years, and feel like an honorary member of their ensemble, this will be my first time soloing with the group. I’m so thrilled to take part in their John Cage show this Sunday afternoon at 3pm, at the Abrons Art Center where we will perform selections from Cage’s Song Books in addition to portions of Atlas Elipticals, and Concert for Piano and Variations. Putting this together has been an amazing experience, and it is such a joy to work with Alan Pierson, Nigel Master , AWS’ resident staging director; and noted John Cage expert Rob Haskins. We’ll be touring selections of this program in the midwest the last week of March and more in Europe this summer.
My second series of performances this month is a premiere of a new 30 minute work by David T. Little for the Brooklyn Philharmonic, and the Brooklyn Youth Chorus. “Brooklyn Village” is a multimedia event seeking to pair works of the past with world premieres centered around Brooklyn’s rich and diverging history. This concert will feature works of Beethoven, Bristow and Aaron Copland, as well as works of Sufjan Stevens, and a world premiere of Sarah Kirkland Snider, in addition to David T. Little’s piece “Am I Born”, which you may have heard a sneak peek of back in October at the World Financial Center. “Brookyln Village” premieres March 24th and 25th at 7:30 pm at the new Roulette location in Brooklyn.
Hope to see some of you at these shows, and please drop me a line if you have questions about tickets. I often have comps and discount codes handed to me.
