It’s Summer in NYC! How do you know? Well, you begin to catch a hint of trash on the warm evening air, you constantly feel like you’ve left something on the subway because you’re no longer carting around fifteen layers of winter clothing and everybody is gearing up for hour-long underground train rides to Rockaway Beach.
Bah, humbug! Bring on summery cocktails and lazing about on rugs in the park and fireflies.
Gigs in June
I’m mega excited to be having a bunch of “firsts” in June. First off is the premiere of my improv-composition “Halos” for flute, beatboxing and electronics at the NYC Electronic Music Festival (NYCEMF). It’s my first appearance as a “composer” in New York and I’m excited to be sharing the bill with so many fabulous folk. I’m also joining the Eastman School of Music-based Switch~ Ensemble for the first time, playing Chris Chandler’s work on the very same NYCEMF program.
Other firsts include debuts with Kills to Kisses (Lisa Dowling) and the fearless and ferocious Ensemble Mise-En. Dates and biz for all of these below. See you out and about!
