The New York Festival of Song Presents In The Memory Palace

Part of the art song recital's enduring wonder is its ability to mix artists, national styles, time periods, and genres in new and interesting ways. The New York Festival of Song's In the Memory Palace celebrates at a kaleidoscope of songs by Gabriel Kahane, Heitor Villa-Lobos, Enrique Granados, Frank Bridge, and others, with two shows this week in New York City. Soprano Michelle Areyzaga, mezzo soprano Rebecca Jo Loeb, tenor Paul Appleby, and baritone Stephen Garland are joined by pianists Steven Blier and Michael Barrett.

You can really get a sense of the collaborative music-making energy from Steven Blier and company in these two NYFOS promotional videos:

In The Memory Palace will be showing at 8pm on October 25 and 27 at the Merkin Concert Hall at the Kaufmann Center on West 67th. Tickets are $55/40/15.
