A Poe Fantasia” sung in NYCC’s “Encores Outreach Program”

On Fri­day May 7, the New York Com­posers Cir­cle pre­sented an “Encores” Out­reach Pro­gram at the JASA West Side Com­mu­nity Cen­ter on the upper west side of Man­hat­tan. Soprano Sofia Dim­itrova, accom­pa­nied by Cather­ine Miller, per­formed my “A Poe Fan­ta­sia” and works by Paul Moravec, Cop­land, Menotti, Ives, and Kevin McCarter. The NYCC’s Exec­u­tive Direc­tor, John de Clef Pi√±eiro, emceed the event, pro­vid­ing an edu­ca­tional overview of 20th Cen­tury art song.

The only prob­lem with these events is that since I’m tak­ing pic­tures, I don’t always get a chance to get a pic­ture of me in there! But here are sev­eral pics of the day’s event. (Click for larger size.)
