I'm thrilled to announce that The Broken Consort will be performing excerpts from Reassemble With Care on our upcoming program entitled Sirens, Interrupted. I'll be spending a week in residence in Portland, Oregon working with this incredible ensemble of which I've been a member since 2015. The group will be made up of founding artistic director, Emily lau (mezzo), soprano Julie Bosworth, harpist Jessica Schaeffer, narrator Les Green and instrumentalist Niccolo Seligmann. If you are in the Portland area March 3 & 4th please join us. It's going to be a fantastic experience!
Today I had the pleasure of meeting with the amazing cellist Karen Ouzounian and soprano/videographer Elizabeth Smith to film a teaser trailer for Reassemble With Care! Karen and I focused on performing one movement (VII) in addition to creating incidental music for the trailer. It was such a beautiful experience watching the improvisation of this piece evolve over our rehearsal period and to continue to push one another to take risks.
Elizabeth Rodgers generously provided her absolutely awesome apartment in West Harlem for the shoot, and it couldn't have been a better location!
Stay tuned for the finished video and promotional still shots from our work today.
