LA-based performer-composer Molly Pease will celebrate the release of her new album "Inner Astronomy” Sunday, Dec. 6 at 6 p.m. PST via YouTube. Pease created the multi-media project using poetry written by her father, the late Randall Pease. The composer set a series of her father's poetry to voices and strings, creating a cantata of pieces that were recorded at First Congregational Church of Los Angeles. The pieces reflect the poet’s search for strength and meaning through spare and metaphorical language as he battled depression, addiction and early-onset dementia. The composer used experimental vocal and string techniques throughout the cantata, reflecting her father’s struggle and ultimate spiritual renewal. A book of the poetry with the poet’s own crayon drawings will be released in January. Joining Pease on vocals will be Sarah Grace Graves, Sharon Chohi Kim and Laurel Irene. Costumes worn for the performance were created by Camilla Carper.

On Thursday, December 10, Houston Grand Opera will release The Making of The Snowy Day: An Opera for All on HGO Digital. The Making of The Snowy Day: An Opera for All will take audiences through the creation and design of HGO’s upcoming 70th world premiere of The Snowy Day. Based on the beloved children’s book by Ezra Jack Keats, the documentary is a collaboration between the opera’s creative team and documentarian Annalise Ophelian. The project explores the creative process of composer Joel Thompson and librettist Andrea Davis Pinkney in advance of the 2021–22 season world premiere. In 1962, Ezra Jack Keats wrote and illustrated The Snowy Day, the heartwarming story of a little boy named Peter who is finally allowed to venture into the snow alone. The book won the 1963 Caldecott Medal, and it broke a persistent color barrier: Peter was the first Black boy to be the main character of a mainstream children’s book.
