Melly plays the American Songbook Series

Greetings from Down Under! I’m writing this from my sunny hotel room at the Adelaide Festival where I will perform in a little less than 48 hours with the rest of my fellow #zornstars. I wanted to take a moment to point you dear readers to some new interviews I’ve done to help promote my Lincoln Center solo recital on the American Songbook series. I’m absolutely elated to be performing on this series! To say it has been a learning experience is an understatement, and it’s been a great push to get me to write down some of the tunes the voices in my head have been singing for ages!

Last Tuesday I sat down in the studio of my park slope apartment and did a video interview for Lincoln Center. Also, during a layover in the Sydney airport, I penned the following very fun interview with THE CODA. You can read all about it here. I talk about music, Lincoln Center memories and who I would choose to be my desert island mate.

As for the show on the 20th, I plan on performing selections from Jacob Cooper’s newly announced NONESUCH album Silver Threads, (which you can pre-order now), and two pieces for multitracked soprano, or multi-melly; I Remember by Ted Hearne, and Requiem for K.V. by Chris Cerrone, who’s song cycle I Will Learn to Love a Person I had the privilege of performing last Thursday night at St. Anne’s. In addition to these pieces, I will perform some covers of favorite songs of mine and my own vocal improvisations with just voice and electronics.

I would love to see as many of you as I can on March 20th in the Kaplan Penthouse at 8pm!
