Rosh Hashanah / 21st Schizoid Music Presents Cheah + Chan
December 28, 2009 § Leave a comment
Monday December 28th at 6:00pm In anticipation of the New Year, Robin Hirsch, our Minister of Culture performs ROSH HASHANAH from his much lauded seven-part performance cycle, MOSAIC: FRAGMENTS OF A JEWISH LIFE. Noted in the Village Voice as no less than “Completely glorious”; lauded by the Bennington Banner as “A reminder that the most radical departure of all is the risk taken by a single performer, wrapped in the language of his solitary soul.” No better moment to see our own spoken word maestro in action.
Might you have noticed this eye-catching (and rather large) photo from last week’s Time Out New York?
TONY knows a good show when they see it. Still reeling from their 2009 Bastille Day French recital on this stage, we’ve invited Baritone/male soprano Phillip Cheah and pianist Trudy Chan back to the Schizoid Series at the Cornelia Street Cafe on Monday, December 28, 2009 at 8:30 PM for a schizoid exploration of yet another country with great musical traditions… merry old England, since, afterall, ’tis the season of Charles Dickens, Ebenezer Scrooge, “God Rest Ye Merry Gentlemen”, etc. But don’t expect much British caroling. Instead keep your ears open for a program spanning art songs, piano solos and 4-hand pieces by the likes of Benjamin Britten, Roger Quilter, Howard Skempton, Noel Coward, Gilbert & Sullivan, and much much more….
