Shameless Advertising

On Wednesday, April 25, 2007 at the North Creek Event Center in Bothell, Washington, there will be a performance of my Aviary Corridor (soprano, flute, string quartet and piano), with poetry by Charles Alexander. The poem, according to the poet

"was written as a kind of response to an outdoor site-specific installation by artist Cynthia Miller (my wife) at the Tucson Botanical Gardens. In the installation, painted sticks, beads, hanging hoops, and other objects were placed along a walkway in the gardens. These objects were in bushes, in branches of trees, and along a wooden fence. In a way they were very unobtrusive, and one could conceivably walk along and not notice them at all. But if one began to notice, then more and more would be seen. When installing the work, soon after hanging a red hoop in a tree, a hummingbird came and flew through the hoop. "

You can see more about it here. And here is a program for the arts series at the University.
