Fantastic evening of incredible music! Jake continues to amaze w/ his inspired and often haunting melodies and the outstanding soloists really did his work justice. The instrumentalists accompanying the soloists did an excellent job as well.
Set to texts by Terrence McNally, Armistead Maupin, Eugenia Zukerman, Gene Scheer, Raymond Carver and others, Heggie’s songs explore a range of human drama with lyricism, theatricality and humor. Final concert includes special artists reception.
