Arias with Dance Glitch ends its tour!

On 15, Sep 2016 | In News | By joel

This remarkable project ended where it all started: National Sawdust. Ariel and I met at the Klein Competition’s 30 Anniversary concert at NS in January 2016. Who knew what that would lead to? We’ve had an exhilarating time performing the work in August and September on tour: California, Oregon, Washington DC, and New York. A BIG Thank YOU! to Fred Spitz of Klein for commissioning the work, the incredible performers and collaborators Ariel Horowitz (violin) and Lauren Siess (viola), and Paul Emerson for his help with the movement. I have never had such a terrific time with a new piece. Stay tuned for more on Arias with Dance Glitch!
