Joelle Wallach’s Let Evening Come for mezzo-soprano and piano will be performed by singer Danielle Freeman as part of her concert on Sunday, December 2 – 8:30 PM at Drom, 85 Avenue A, between 5th and 6th St. in the East Village section of Manhattan.

Joelle Wallach has written about the song, Let Evening Come is based on one of poet Jane Kenyon’s final poems, written as Kenyon came to accept her rapidly approaching death. She observes life’s abundance of beauty and blessings as she comes to see her own death as a natural and inevitable part of life’s lush landscape.” The piece has been recorded by mezzo-soprano Avis Stroud and pianist Steven Harlos for the 4Tay label.

The evening will open with selected works from members of New York Women Composers, performed by Ms. Freeman. The second half of the program is a performance by her Ladies and Gentlemen Ensemble. The performance has been made possible by a New York Women Composers Seed Grant.
