Due to a rather hectic first week of school (I’ve been appointed chair of the arts division, with administrative duties – hope they know what they’re getting into), this is a possibly too-late reminder that Relache will be performing my ten-movement suite The Planets tonight, for the first time playing it live with John Sanborn’s wonderful video, at the Barnes Foundation in Philadelphia, 2025 Benjamin Franklin Parkway; call 888-616-0277. It’s part of some big “First Friday” celebration fo all things Philadelphian, apparently. The event is listed as starting at 6, but I’m led to believe the music begins considerably later. Relache will repeat the feat at Bard College next Thursday, Sept. 13.
Then this Sunday, Sept. 9, at 8, I’m playing a few pieces at a concert at Spectrum in New York City, 121 Ludlow Street, second floor. Johnny Reinhard and Michael Vincent Waller also perform on this all-microtonal program. Trekking down to the city with my 88-key keyboard again.
UPDATE: Looks like I’m staying over in NYC to hear David First’s concert Monday night (Sept. 10) at 8 at the same place, Spectrum. Kathleen Supove joins him and the latest of his umpteen-dozen groups, The Western Enisphere.
