Yesterday I did a short interview for WWFM radio about the Somewhere Project at Carnegie Hall. Once I have a broadcast time, I'll post.
In the meantime, the latest issue of CHAMBER MUSIC has an article I wrote about it (on page 25), as part of a larger discussion of creative learning projects. These are thematically organized arts education projects that involve creation, performance, and reflection on a large scale. They are anchored by a major work, and this year it's the song Somewhere from West Side Story. Past projects have centered on Golijov's St. Mark's Passion, Carmina Burana, Bernstein's Mass, and The Rite of Spring, among others.
Our forum, which will kick off the project is happening at Carnegie Hall's education wing on Sunday September 24th from 1 - 6 pm. There will be lots of great conversation and art making - if you're in NYC, please come!
