Songs for a Healing World:
A Celebration of Live Music in the Greatest City on Earth!

Performers:
Christina Krawec, Soprano - Grand Rapids, MI
Matthew Billman, Baritone - Brooklyn
William Remmers, Piano - Washington Heights

We wanted to select a program that would celebrate the joy of being able to perform live music again, and so we picked these songs for one reason, and one reason only: they're darn fun to sing. We present a mixture of modern and classical musical theatre, with a focus on American musical traditions and the ever-evolving landscape of modern composition.

Matthew Billman has called New York City home for six years. Selected credits: “The Imbible” (Ash/Vin, New World Stages), “Hunchback” (Phoebus, NY debut, White Plains), “Phantom” (The Phantom, Westchester Broadway Theatre), “Masquerade” (Man 2/The Phantom, NY debut, White Plains). He tours internationally with the Jersey Tenors.

Christina Krawec has performed and competed worldwide in China, Spain, Austria, the US, and the UK. Notable credits include “The Pirates of Penzance” (Mabel, Forbear! Theatre), “Die Fledermaus” (Adele, Die Fledermaus Zuhaus), “Opera Ball 2020” (Debutante, Vienna State Opera), “United Nations Ball 2020” (Opening Ceremony Soloist, Vienna Hofburg Imperial Palace). She most recently performed in the Indianapolis Opera’s production of “Carousel” and is thrilled to be back in NYC.

NYC, it's been too long. It's time to make music again. Here's to all of you!
