benefit event for nunc – January 13, 2013

Join us for a party and concert to support nunc‘s upcoming events!! In particular, we are raising funds to present Michael Hersch’s monodrama, on the threshold of winter.

There will be a performance of an excerpt of the opera, in a voice/piano arrangement performed by gifted soprano Ah Young Hong and pianist Matei Varga – get an advance peek at this remarkable work! Michael has also arranged one movement of the work for violin and piano, which I’m delighted perform at the event also.

Translator Adam Sorkin will be on hand to speak and to sign copies of Marin Sorescu’s work, on which the opera is based. 

Michael will perform his Two Lullabies for solo piano – a rare chance to watch and hear him play live.

We will have drinks and time to mingle and talk with everyone. Hope you’ll join us on January 13, 4pm!

We ask a minimum donation of $20, and would be truly grateful for any amount further that you can give.
The signed copies of Sorescu/Sorkin The Bridge will be available for an additional donation of $25 (minimum).

You can also donate here on the website through Paypal or by check.
