Schoenberg’s Pierrot Lunaire

Hi, all!

This fall has been a busy one filled with many great experiences. I was really excited to share some songs by NYC composer John Musto in September at The Graduate Center’s Music in Midtown program. In October, pianist Andrea Lodge and I performed excerpts from composer Alex Nohai-Seaman‘s Letter From Home at the Rhymes With Opera salon. That was an amazing night filled with extraordinary new music. If you haven’t checked out Rhymes With Opera before — DO IT! And most recently, I was delighted to sing Ralph Vaughan Williams’ Ten Blake Songs for voice and oboe at a concert honoring CUNY professor Allan Atlas. These pieces, written near the end of RVW’s life, are delicate and beautiful and I was so glad I was able to perform them with stellar oboist, Kristin Leitterman.

As fun as all that was, though, little can compare with the thrill I feel to sing Schoenberg’s Pierrot Lunaire this December. This seminal work by Arnold Schoenberg will be featured on another Music in Midtown mid-day concert on December 5th. Here are the details:
