Musical Ecologies: Jason Cady

Tomorrow night, drop by The Old Stone House for an evening of conversation and performance by Jason Cady, composer of experimental vocal and chamber music, hosted by composer Dan Joseph.

The Wire describes Cady’s one-act opera, Post-Madonna Prima Donna, as, “thoughtful satire, sharp composition.” WQXR’s Operavore described his two-act opera Happiness is the Problem as keeping “the energy hovering at 11 consistently, fusing the stilettoed [sic] coloratura of Mozart’s ‘Queen of the Night’ with Glass at his most hyper-caffeinated; you’re left gasping at the end for a reprieve, while admiring the psychological underpinnings of Cady’s work.”

There is a sample of Cady's work, above, or visit his website here.

The event starts at 8pm. Suggested donation at the door.
