There has been a lot going on in the last few weeks. I’m still sorting through the luggage, photos, and general wreckage of running around like a decapitated chicken. But! I have concert news for you that involves me, friends, coworkers, and perfect strangers that I feel the need to bring you. So, I’m setting aside the work that needs to be done to share the details with you. Please make sure to see at least some of these, they’re going to be great!
In chronological order because I’m me and also because I’m singing in the first one.
Friday October 16, 2015- When Patients Heal You
Regular readers may remember this one from last year. I sang and it turned out pretty well. The video is below for those who are interested. It wasn’t miked properly and so it doesn’t sound like it did in the room. It never does, really, but there’s another great lineup this year and you’ll hear everything from Caribbean to Jazz, Pop and Soul to Blues, Americana, and more. This group really does do it all. And, it’s FREE and there’s a FREE reception afterward. Don’t miss it!
Ok, I’ll come right out and admit that I screwed up and I’m working during this concert. That was dumb. I mean, look at this ad!
Join Meravelha for an evening of spooky medieval songs and stories about monstrous creatures, possession, ghostly apparitions, a nearly-headless martyr, and the end of the world.
Candy and cider to follow!

This concert was supposed to happen earlier this year. But it got trampled by snow. Absolutely smashed. Repeatedly. So it’s happening now. You’re welcome.
And last but in no way least, Cappella Clausura.
Cappella Clausura– Clarke, Copland & Cassandra
Cassandra is an a cappella opera. Yep, an a cappella opera. This is the first time that it’s being performed staged and with costumes. It’s going to be a blast. We’ll see composer Elena Ruher‘s influences going back to the ancient Greek female composer Kassia up through modern composers like Rebecca Clarke and Aaron Copland.
