The Kurt Weill Project: Moon Floating on Water at Berkeley Arts Festival, 8 PM on November 29, 2011 (2133 University Ave, Berkeley CA)
"The Kurt Weill Project: Moon Floating on Water, the first offering of Goat Hall's Season of Catharsis, features an array of cast-off characters, nongender specific, who are striving for love and enlightenment in hard times. Both sacred and profane, these songs are full of first-person stories told with passion and humor, celebrating life and love by evoking the past, the present, and even a desperate belief in the future."
Company at the Creche
"Their 25 well-balanced voices shine in a program including Daniel Pinkham's charming 'Company at the Creche,' Renaissance music, and five world premieres written especially for this outstanding ensemble. Three pieces feature hand bell player David Kashevaroff."
