Joelle Wallach's Let Evening Come for mezzo-soprano and piano will be performed by singer Danielle Freeman as part of her concert on Sunday, December 2 – 8:30 PM at Drom, 85 Avenue A, between 5th and 6th St. in the East Village section of Manhattan.
Joelle Wallach has written about the song, “Let Evening Come is based on one of poet Jane Kenyon’s final poems, written as Kenyon came to accept her rapidly approaching death. She observes life’s abundance of beauty and blessings as she comes to see her own death as a natural and inevitable part of life’s lush landscape.” The piece has been recorded by mezzo-soprano Avis Stroud and pianist Steven Harlos for the 4Tay label.
The evening will open with selected works from members of New York Women Composers, performed by Ms. Freeman. The second half of the program is a performance by her Ladies and Gentlemen Ensemble. The performance has been made possible by a New York Women Composers Seed Grant.
Tickets for the December 2 event are $10 and are available by calling 212-777-1157 or visiting http://www.dromnyc.com/events/1969/danielle-freeman-solo-quintet.
All About Jazz Magazine stated, “With the poise of an opera diva and an ability to scat like Ella Fitzgerald, New York-based singer Danielle Freeman possesses a voice that commands attention with beauty and control…." She is also the leader of the Bass and Voice Duo-Toss the Microphones which is an intimate musical setting of her compositions. Visit her at http://www.daniellefreeman.com/live/.
Joelle Wallach composes music for orchestra, chamber ensembles, solo voices and choruses. Her String Quartet 1995 was the American Composers Alliance nominee for the 1997 Pulitzer Prize in Music. The New York Philharmonic Ensembles premiered her octet, From the Forest of Chimneys, written to celebrate their 10th anniversary; and the New York Choral Society commissioned her secular oratorio, Toward a Time of Renewal, for 200 voices and orchestra to commemorate their 35th Anniversary Season in Carnegie Hall. Wallach's early training in piano, voice, theory, bassoon and violin included study at the Juilliard Preparatory Division. In 1984 the Manhattan School of Music, where she studied with John Corigliano, granted her its first doctorate in composition.
The 4Tay label has released two new CDs of Dr. Wallach’s music - The Door Standing Open – a collection of songs and chamber works (CD 4034) - http://www.cdbaby.com/cd/joellewallach and The Nightwatch - more songs and solo piano works (CD 4035) - http://www.cdbaby.com/cd/joellewallach2.
