Harbors at Nief-Norf Summer Festival by Theresa Wong

The Nief Norf Summer Festival + 6th Annual Conference on Music and Minimalism- what an incredible experience! Getting to hear works by Julius Eastman, Mary Jane Leach, Michael Gordon, Louis Andriessen and many more. The highlight was being able to share and perform Harbors with Ellen Fullman to a full house at the University of Knoxville's Ewing Gallery. Deep thanks to Kerry O'Brien and the amazing team running the festival!

Last stop at The Stone... by Theresa Wong

A post thunderstorm blaze during a quick trip to New York to perform with Chris Brown and Kyle Bruckmann at The Stone. The visit was packed with a visit to Rei Kawakubo's exhibit at The Met, getting to hear/see The World Is Sound exhibit at The Rubin and not missing my favorite Georgian dumplings in the Lower East Side. It was a bit sad to say goodbye to The Stone, but I'm excited to see it's reincarnation at the New School!

To Burst To Bloom - joining forces with Vajra Voices by Theresa Wong

I had the sheer pleasure of joining the magnificent singers of Vajra Voices in the premiere of To Burst To Bloom, three settings of poems by the 12th Century Taoist adept Sun Bu'Er. Three more pieces are forthcoming to finish off this collection. The songs were included in the program Remembered Migrations this past weekend at the Presidio Officer's Club (photo by Omid Zoufonoun) in SF and the Berkeley Jazz School. 

Letters To A Friend premiere by Splinter Reeds by Theresa Wong

Huge thank you to Splinter Reeds for a superb performance of Letters To A Friend last night! Dedicated to my dearly departed friend, Alessia Pugliatti, the piece is a musical transmission of Augusto de Campos' poem O Pulsar. The evening's trailblazing program included Babbling by Ken Ueno and Tom Johnson's Narayana's Cows narrated by the one and only Pamela Z.

Remembered Migrations - an evening with Vajra Voices by Theresa Wong

Vajra Voices member Cheryl Moore said, 'if Hobbits went to church this is where they'd go' - - and truly it was a Hobbit-like evening in the Swedenborgian Church of San Francisco with a wonderful program by Vajra Voices, including the first part of To Burst To Bloom, a new work in the making setting the texts of 12th Century Chinese Female Adept, Sun Bu'er.
