I am thrilled to once again be a part of this landmark festival – this year joining the remarkable team of Thumbprint – a gorgeous new opera by composer Kamala Sankaram and librettist Susan Yankowitz which chronicles the journey of Mukhtar Mai (an illiterate woman gang-raped as retribution for an ‘honor crime’ her brother allegedly committed who becomes the first woman in Pakistan to bring her attackers to justice and in turn vows to build schools to educate women) —it is a powerful work about a truly singular, exceptional human being………January 10-19, Baruch Performing Arts Center.
Either/Or gathers tonight to play the stunningly beautiful music of Icelandic composer Anna Thorvaldsdottir in the Miller Theater Portrait Concert series – 8 pm. Touted by the NY Times and the New Yorker, TimeOut NY puts it best: “Two words: Be There!”
AACM presents Either/Or, George Lewis and Discopoet Khari B. in a one of a kind portrait concert featuring Lewis’ chamber music (including the East Coast premiere of Hexis!) and George playing his purple trombone!!!….Community Church of Manhattan 40 East 35th Street (bet Madison and Park Avenues)
Fall 2013 is action packed — in addition to the premiere and fall tour of Fables on Global Warming (see below), I am joining my Either/Or pals at Miller Theater on October 17, 8 PM for The Cage 100 Party Pieces which include premieres by 125 German and US composers!!!
I am thrilled to join composer Corey Dargel, visual director Doug Fitch and the fabulous ArmitageGone!dance company in Fables on Global Warming — a cautionary tale of caring for the planet told through the exquisite vision of Karole Armitage. Tour dates follow…..
