We invite you to Roulette’s First Annual Benefit honoring
ASCAP Vice President and Director of Concert Music Frances Richard
with a performance by composer, singer, and “Magician of the Voice”
PRE-CONCERT COCKTAIL RECEPTION
DINNER AND PERFORMANCE
JANUARY 10, 2013
A pioneer in “extended vocal technique” and “interdisciplinary performance,” composer, singer, director/choreographer Meredith Monk creates works that thrive at the intersection of music and movement, image and object, light and sound in an effort to discover and weave together new modes of perception. Her groundbreaking exploration of th voice as an instrument, as an eloquent language in and of itself, expands the boundaries of musical composition, creating landscapes of sound that unearth feelings, energies, and memories for which there are no words. Meredith Monk will present a unique work for this special occasion.
Roulette’s inaugural benefit honoree, Frances Richard, Vice President and Director of Concert Music at ASCAP, has been a tireless advocate for composers for over two decades. She helped create Meet The Composer with John Duffy and ran the concert division of ASCAP, opening it up to jazz composers as well as classical artists. Roulette honors and thanks Fran for her lifelong dedication to composers.
Roulette is unique in its persistent commitment to new, experimental work and the artists who make it. The First Annual Benefit will not only support Roulette’s mission of providing artists with a premier venue to perform, but also grant them access to affordable rehearsal space and high quality sound and video recording facilities.
