Scouting out performance space in Philadelphia to premiere new work for piccolo

I spent the afternoon in center city Philadelphia yesterday with Andrew Simonet of Artists U. His organization offers strategic planning to Philadelphia area artists and my private session was provided by the Leeway Foundation, through the grant I received in 2004 for producing my piccolo CD. Andrew had some fantastic ideas about performance spaces and project collaborators for my premiere performance of Howard Hersh‘s “I had to go Down in the Mines to Climb Up to the Sky” and ways to create a multi-media event surrounding this single work. I am so motivated, not only to create this amazing piece of art, scored for solo piccolo and a pre-recorded choir of 16 piccolos, but to share it with new audiences. I’ll be documenting my experiences as they unfold along with more information about the composition.
