The premiere of echoes in Staunton, VA went very well. My thanks to Julia Turnbull and Matthew Stephens on all of their hard work and dedication. Mark Statman attended the premiere with his family, and his son Jesse videoed the event. In the coming weeks, Jesse will tape an interview/conversation with the two of us here in NYC to turn into a short documentary around the work.
I’m also particularly happy with my performances of Chet Biscardi’s Modern Love Songs and excerpts from David Del Tredici’s Gay Life (In the Temple, Personals Ad, Here). Chet, too, was happy with the performance. It was great performing with Robert Barrett and Matthew Stephens on the respective songs – both are fantastic musicians.
