Thanks to a grant from Chamber Music America and the French American Cultural Exchange (FACE), I've had the great pleasure of putting together a great set of original music by both pianist Laurent Coq and myself. We have taken four poems (two originally in French and two written in English, both translated to the other language) and set them in our respective languages. Thanks to some great work from singers Christine Correa and Laurence Allison, bassist Yoni Zelnik, and drummer Karl Janusska we have a really wonderful set of eight songs.
We'll be at Radio France on Saturday November 21st and Sunside the following day.
