    We in trenches of new music, or what some back in school called "contemptible music", salute you.

    What other kind of material do you do? Any CDs, you tube links, etc. you would like to let us know about?

    What kind of soprano are you anyway, Kelley? What is your favorite material to sing, either in an ensemble or as a soloist? My mom was a voice teacher, nad, in her day, a lyric soprano. I grew up with this stuff, and I love it, but, sadly, was blessed with the voice of a low flying bass frog.

      I have some reluctance about posting specifically about my performances, especially without checking first with directors of the various organizations I belong to...  It's odd to be offering up criticisms of performances I have actually participated in, so I have to be careful about that.  I will check on it.

      There is one link I'll provide to a webcast since it's up anyway on wnyc.org: WNYC Greene Space Performance

      This was part of the inauguration of the Jerome L. Greene performing space at WNYC.  Not the best or most forgiving acoustics, but whatever.  It's cool to have the audience practically sitting in your lap.  "The Little Match Girl" by David Lang is truly affecting.  We did it several days later in a church where the sound rolled around nicely and it really rocked.  It's such a moving piece!

      I'm a lyric soprano of the high variety.  I like to sing mostly everything.  I just like to sing period.  But JS Bach especially.
