Meet the Composer of “27”
Meet the Composer of 27
Ricky Ian Gordon
Tuesday January 23, 7:30
Macomb Center for the Performing Arts
44575 Garﬁeld Rd., Clinton, Mich
Join us for a special FREE event with composer Ricky Ian Gordon and the MOT Studio Artists.
Ricky Ian Gordon is a leading writer of vocal music that spans art song, opera (such as MOT’s upcoming 27), and musical theater. He will share insights into the inspiration and composition process for several of his works. Intermixed will be performances of those works by the MOT Studio Artists.
“If the music of Ricky Ian Gordon had to be defined by a single quality, it would be the bursting effervescence infusing songs that blithely blur the lines between art song and the high–end Broadway music of Leonard Bernstein and Stephen Sondheim. It’s caviar for a world gorging on pizza!”
–The New York Times
