Tonight’s the night!

In preparation for tonight’s big concert I’ve posted the program notes for the eponymous song cycle, A Brief History of Love and Poetry in the Listen section of the blog. With any luck, the audio from tonight’s performance will soon be posted there as well (at least for the poems that don’t cost over $1000 to purchase mechanical licenses).

In the meantime I’m going over my mental checklist to make sure everything’s all set for tonight. Cookies are baked, wine purchased, programs folded, clothing picked out. Oh yes, at some point there’s the music.

Hope to see many of you at the Community Music Center tonight…

    Wonderful program; Cary & Jason ( and you , of course) were so great – but it was the MUSIC! It all was teriffic. I was crazy about the opera/theatre music and LOVED the string quartet.

    ( I was the woman introduced to you by Judy Epstein) BTW – I did not want to get into it last night when asked – but one of the contemporary music programs I heard recently that sounded alternately like a film score and/or an assault to my ears was a concert I attended at Herbst.

      Thanks so much Shelley! I’m glad you were able to make it. I try to keep my music from becoming too alienating. While “accessible” is too often a code word for vapid. I try to make my stuff understandable on the first listen, but complex enough to warrant deeper listenings…
