Staniland goes "Blue" for Continuum
C&V alumnus Andrew Staniland will have his song "Blue" (2008) presented as part of Continuum's first concert of its 44th New York season - NORTHERN EXPOSURES: Canadian Music – The New Individualists. The concert is Tuesday, December 8, 7 PM, at Americas Society, 680 Park Avenue at 68th Street.
"Blue," based on a moving poem of Walt Whitman, will be sung by mezzo-soprano, Abigail Fischer. The piece was developed during Andrew's residency during the 2007-08 Composers & the Voice program at AOP with Fischer premiering the song.
