Ensemble 365's album Eastern Currents has been named a National Finalist for The American Prize for Chamber Music Performance in 2018-19.
The second season of Parlour Room Sessions at the Brooklyn Conservatory of Music is going to be fantastic -- I'm thrilled to present performers Kristin Leitterman, Derin Öge, Anneke Schaul-Yoder, Skye Steel, Sugar Vendil, and author Amy Nathan in these intimate events, with chamber performances, audience Q&A, and reception.
I've joined the faculty of the Music & Art department at CUNY Borough of Manhattan Community College AND the flute faculty of Juilliard's Music Advancement Program in Fall 2018 -- I'm thrilled to be working with so many new, talented, and inspiring students from so many walks of life!
I was a member of the inaugural cohort of the CreateNYC's Leadership Accelerator program for New York City cultural workers in June 2018!
Praise for Ensemble 365's CD Eastern Currents from Colin Clarke in Fanfare Magazine
"The standard of performance throughout by all performers is pretty much faultless."
"The performance here [of Frangiz Ali-Zadeh's Three Watercolors] is fabulous, the aching loneliness of “Narcissus” for soprano and flute (itself implying a shakuhachi) balanced by the angular play of “The Boatman.”
"Mary Hubbell is a most expressive soprano, and Alice Jones the perfect partner (the two parts are very much equals). The deep flute resonance of the opening of the final movement, “Dream Song,” and the way Hubbell’s blanched tone morphs with the flute sound is a spectacular sonic feat that captures the fluidity of sound that lies at the heart of Lam’s music."
"A phenomenally interesting release... required listening."
