Premiere

New York, Alone

Sun, April 18, 2021 8:00 PM, EDT

Hello and welcome to "New York, Alone," a special program that I got to perform in a special place. You will hear work by the downtown artists Philip Glass, Allen Ginsberg, and Arthur Russell resounding among the old New York artifacts housed in the City Reliquary. It was captured in an 20x20ft room on November 20, 2020, so socially-distanced space was extremely limited, but this Muse will allow me to relive the experience with a bigger audience. I welcome all friends, colleagues, and New York romanticists. Please listen with headphones or out of speakers, if possible!

Thank you all so much for coming last night, whether you joined the ZOOM or tuned into to the YouTube premiere! It meant a lot to relive that special evening with a mix of family, friends and new acquaintances.

A little bonus audience participation challenge! I would be curious to know if any of you had favorite movements or songs from last night, as I am now choosing "singles" to release publicly in late May on YouTube.

If you'd like to keep in touch, feel free to e-mail me at [email protected] I might be creating a mailing list through my website soon, and can add your name.

Hope you have a wonderful week, and I look forward to being together together rather than alone together in some cramped apartment again before the end of the year. NYers, be on the lookout!

Cheers,
Aaron
