News galore

Tonight at the Church of the Advent (30 Brimmer Street in Boston), D'Anna Fortunato and Peter H. Bloom will perform the première of The Crystalline Ship (Op.119 № 1) for mezzo-soprano and baritone saxophone, text by Leo Schulte.

Today (dunno just when) is the first joint rehearsal of Plotting (Op.116). (Oh, yes, and I promised EmmaLee that I would write a blurb for the program . . . .)

Premières of both the Cello Sonatina (Op.105) and Nicodemus brings myrrh & aloes for the burial of the Christ (Op.85 № 4), both pieces for cello and piano, will take place here in Boston (or, the Boston area) the first week of April.

Heinrich asked if I had (or, if I do not, if inspiration is wafting for) an unaccompanied setting of John 3:16. I have an idea . . . and now, it's all about execution.

Rehearsal for I see people walking around like trees (Op.120) will begin this Tuesday.

And we of The 9th Ear will be meeting over some tea (and, possibly, something tasty which Maggi Smith-Dalton may bake) a week from tomorrow.
