OK Feel Good
The ultra-amazing American Modern Ensemble, led by the ultra-fabulous Robert and Victoria Paterson, performs my chamber sextet OK Feel Good this Monday the 13th at the ultra-hip Galapagos Art Space in Brooklyn, on their season-opening program Pieces of Eight: 8 sextets by composers under 40. Most excitingly, AME's performance of OKFG will actually be the NYC Premiere. Written in 1996, the work has been played in at least four countries, but not yet here at home. New Yorkers, see you there!
