Good news! Lots of opportunities have come up in the past few days.
I’ll be singing in Kinnara‘s February Concert, “Be My Love,” on February 14 and 15. Very excited to get the chance to perform with them again! I also have a church audition tomorrow doing a piece I’ve only sung through once, so I’ll prep what I can.
I’m also going to start working on a few art songs with my teacher. Modern ones of course, I’m looking at Debussy, Poulenc, working my way up to Jennifer Higdon, might poke some C4 friends to see if they have any songs I can do! This should be fun
Finally, I’m doing a Lessons and Carols service in Edison on the 15th (along with the Continuo concert that same night). Busy, in the best possible way!
This is pretty cool. Q2 is trying to start a podcast called “Meet the Composer,” where they try to get inside the minds to 21st century composers, play their works, and highlight the best that’s out there. It doesn’t take much to fund this Kickstarter and it’s a great idea for a show, if you’re interested in new music (like me!) you should check it out!
Here’s their intro video for good measure:
