Concerts in Poland 2013

past events:

On August 30th, and 31st of this year, I had a rare opportunity to be a part of the reunion of the cabaret group associated with Pod Papugami Music Association beetween 1993-1998, and with which I worked myself between 1995-1998.

"Spotkanie po latach"-with Towarzystwo Muzyczne Pod Papugami-MDK, Stalowa Wola, Poland, 8/30/2013

"Na pomoc zamkowi"-with Towarzystwo Muzyczne Pod Papugami- Dabrowka Starzenska Castle, Poland, 8/31/2013

On September 8th, 2013 I had an honor to share the stage with a very young, and talented soprano by the name of Milena Lange. Together with Milena, we staged a world premiere of my song cycle written to the poetry of Carl Sandburg. It was a blast and I'm looking forward to future projects as well. Also, the official DVD of an entire concert is coming out soon! Stay tuned.
