Aviary Corridor

So, Aviary Corridor was performed on April 25th! The performance went really well. The piece was performed as part of a conference-festival of the poetry of Charles Alexander. Before the performance that evening, the poet came up and read some of his poetry (including Aviary Corridor). He writes wonderful poems, the words are strewn about, words and phrases falling form the sky. The listener connects his or her own dots to find hidden secrets.
Then the group performed my piece (soprano, flute, string quartet and piano). It was an exuberant performance, almost the way I heard it in my head. They are repeating the concert on May 2nd, 2007 at the Richard Hugo House,1634 11th Avenue, Seattle, WA, at 7:30 pm.
