The latest Arts Anyway webstream is up on Youtube. This edition features two varry varry posh dinosaurs introducing Alexander Hajek singing Fauré and Rebecca Cuddy singing two of Ian Cusson’s settings of texts by Marilyn Dumont. I think this is the kind of music and the kind of engagement that I miss most hunkered down here in the KittenKondo. I can live without Mozart or Wagner (just about) but artsong, especially artsong that speaks to what matters to us most today… not having that hurts. Keith Lam’s interviewee is also Rebecca Cuddy.
Arts Anyway Episode 2 featuring some musical theatre performances and an interview with the the amazing Teiya Kasahara is up on their YouTube channel.
And, this year’s Toronto Bach Festival has been cancelled. Since that was scheduled for the last weekend in May that’s the furthest out cancelation yet.
There were a few technical glitches with the first episode of Arts Anyway so if you went looking for it last night you were likely out of luck. It’s up now on YouTube though on channel Arts Anyway though you may have to check under “playlists” to find the video.
