Amanda Williams, soprano and Joshua Espinoza, piano, are among the performers on this collaborative concert. Amanda has chosen to sing an excerpt from my Yeats Songs. This will be the premiere of these three songs: “Before the World Was Made,” “Death of a Hare,” and “Old Memory.”

A diverse group of Baltimore’s most prolific performers are coming together in a collaborative concert of self-chosen music that speaks to the identity of the musician. Amanda Williams (Soprano), Claire Galloway Weber (Mezzo-Soprano), DeCarlo Raspberry (Baritone), and Joshua Espinoza (Pianist) have each chosen music that they fell represents themselves as individuals. Led by composer, Frances Pollock, Songs of Self examines personal narratives and asks the question, “What happens when we as musicians express the intimate vulnerability of our own personal story through music?”

The group has assembled an incredible line-up of composers that will be featured on the concert, including world premiers by Baltimore’s own, Dr. Andre’ Godsey, Scott Miller and Frances Pollock. Judith Weir, William Grant Still, and Duke Ellington are other names that will round out the evening. In between each set, the performers will sit with Sr. Rector, David Ware, and discuss the power of their chosen music. The concert will conclude with an opportunity for the audience to meet the performers over a light reception.

Songs of Self is a fundraising concert that will support the performers in traveling to Bowling Green, Ohio for the 2017 New Music Gathering where they will present a panel on diversity in classical music. Admission is free with a suggested donation of $15-$20 that will go directly to funding the group’s travel to the conference.

Julian Loida, percussion

Andrew and Julian will give the premiere of a short work (c. 5’30) that I composed especially for Andrew while at AMFS last summer. The piece (for trumpet, vibraphone, triangle, and two cowbells) defies our expectations of brass and percussion by presenting a statement in only hushed, understated sounds.
