I’ve attended their concerts for years, so I’m excited to be a part of Lyric Fest’s upcoming season as Composer in Residence!
A Shakespeare trio, a choral work with audience participation, a large song cycle using new poems inspired by new paintings, and lecturing on Lieder are all part of my 2014-15 residency with Philadelphia’s Lyric Fest, which for more than ten years has been bringing imaginative art song performances to the aficionado and newcomer alike.
More details about each of the concerts are here, and their brand-new brochure is linked here. Lyric Fest is a unique musical offering, equally noted for scholarship and entertainment, presenting artists of national and international stature in the intimate setting of song. Critics call Lyric Fest “compulsively enterprising” and “an irresistible mix of high art and humane feeling… as entertaining as a well managed party.”
I hope to greet you at one of the concerts. My deep thanks to Suzanne DuPlantis, Laura Ward, and everyone at Lyric Fest for this wonderful opportunity!
