Lembit Beecher - Concert . January 20th and 21st at 8 pm at the DiMenna center in midtown Manhattan
I wanted to invite you to a concert coming up on January 20th and 21st at 8 pm at the DiMenna center in midtown Manhattan! The concert features "And Then I Remember," a documentary oratorio based on interviews I did with my grandmother, Taimi Lepasaar, about her childhood in Estonia and escape to the United States during WWII. (Excerpts of this piece were played at the Estonian House Concert in the fall). On the program also is a piece by Veljo Tormis and the world premiere of a new song cycle that I wrote called "Three Immigrant Songs," which includes a setting of a poem by Marie Under.
Composer In Residence, Opera Company of Philadelphia
