Looking to the New Season

The video projects and Ives songs are all folded and packed away after their travels, and life, especially my work on visual art, continues at a rather third-date pianissimo. It's the quiet time before everything changes. A season is soon to end. The duration of daylight shortens metrically now, like a bouncing ball, quickly, each day shorter and shorter and shorter. The rhythm will reverse, I muse, and situations, dynamics, will definitely change. But wait! Autumn has no intention of dribbling quietly away! The concert season is soon upon us! (How can I forget?) This year I am especially proud of VOCI's work on the Persichetti Winter Cantata (get out your gogo boots, oversized white plastic sunglasses, and favorite book of Japanese haiku--it's just so 1960s) and for the Basilica concert on the 16th I will give the recently donated harpsichord a test drive in Bach's Wachet auf. Please join us at one of these concerts!
