Sparks & Wiry Cries songSLAM - Tuesday, 4/25, 8:30 PM

Excited to premiere a new art song that I co-wrote with composer Joe Rubinstein, to be sung by the uber-talented Alaysha Fox! The audience also votes on their favorite songs of the evening (there are 11 others by various emerging composers). Looking forward to a fun evening of new work at HERE in SoHo! Come listen!
