Totally shameless plug here, folks. Mezzo-soprano Katherine Crawford is giving a concert of contemporary music as a part of the Vox Novus Composers’ Voice series this weekend. The concert is Sunday, October 28 at 1 PM in Jan Hus Church (map and details are at that link back there).
I mention this because Katherine is an excellent performer and someone you should hear. Her performance of Scott Blasco’s Four Songs from The Caucasian Chalk Circle totally stole the show when I heard them at Electronic Music Midwest a few years back. She is also singing works by such upscale and high-class composers as David Morneau, Greg Dixon, and George Brunner (just to name a few). It will be quite the program!
Yeah, she is singing a new piece of mine too. You should go anyway. You should also check out her Twitter feed, too. Especially if you like discussions about gin and scooters (although not at the same time).
