Aftermath Premiere

The Druid City Ensemble – Dr. Sarah Crocker, flute; Dr. Whitney O’Neal, flute; and Dr. Dawn Neely, soprano – will premiere Aftermath, a dramatic take on the Hansel and Gretel fairy tale, Saturday November 7 at 2:30 at Southside Baptist Church in Birmingham, and again at the University of Montevallo’s LeBaron Recital Hall on November 8 at 2:30. This is my first work that emphasizes improvisation as an integral part of the performance, in the spirit of Terry Riley’s In C. The text, an extension of Louise Glück’s “Gretel in Darkness,” was written by Bailey Brotherton. Admission is free!
