Joe's PUB at the Public, Astor Place
We are so excited to announce that on November 5th, Cantata Profana has been invited to debut at NY's premier cabaret, Joe's PUB at the Public, where headliners range from fabulous drag artists to world music stars and indie folk legends. For a classical music ensemble, this is a rare treat! In a Distant Land features vocalist JOHN TAYLOR WARD, pianist LEE DIONNE, percussionist DOUG PERRY, and guest guitarist DAN LIPPEL in a one-night-only fantasia of songs, poems, and instrumentals that speak to each other from across centuries and continents. CP brings its inimitable programming style to this new venue with a show that spans Romantic Lieder, classic Ranchero songs of Mexico, Baroque English songs, contemporary Chinese solo works, the world premier of Daniel Schlosberg's arrangements of Charles Ives songs from New England, and American composer George Crumb's new song cycle Ghosts of Alhambra.
