Happy Friday, beautiful people--

Here's my latest for Tidings, a piece about Southern Cal's own former-head-of-the-NEA/poet Dana Gioia, collaborative pianist Victoria Kirsch, , and Elizabeth Bishop.

And about a month-long series of events at our own Colburn School and an art/music genre of which I had previously known nothing called "songfest."

"The Colburn School is a world-class performing arts school located downtown on Grand Avenue, kitty-corner from Disney Hall. I can’t say the number of times I have trudged or driven there to drink from the cornucopia of delights, mostly free, that spill from its doors. Faculty recitals, student recitals, Sunday afternoon chamber music in Zipper Hall. Lectures on ballet. An Adult Studies division.

Here’s a program that while not sponsored by the Colburn, takes place there: SongFest, a summer festival and intensive training program for singers and collaborative pianists in art song performance. For the students who are accepted to the program, SongFest is a stellar opportunity for training and performance with distinguished artists. For the rest of us, it means 14 events throughout the month of June, with a 2014 mini-festival called 'Songs of California.'”
