I'm singing the world-premiere of the song cycle Four Seasons by Composer-in-Residence Caroline Mallonée with the Buffalo Chamber Players at PAUSA Art House on Thursday, March 16, 2017. I commissioned this piece from Carrie for very low Contralto and piano, based on texts from The Pillow Book (Sei Shōnagon, 11th century Japan), a few years back. More of Carrie's music will also be featured in this BCP concert... and in fact it won't be the only time I perform in a premiere of hers this season. Vocális Chamber Choir has commissioned a work by Carrie, who sings in the Alto section, for our Gala 15th Anniversary Concert in June 2017. And in even more awesomesauce news, Vocális is joining BCP as their Guest Vocal Ensemble for a concert in March, and we are bringing them into our concert series as well. Looking forward to more fruitful collaborations with BCP!
