Folks, I am proud to announce I collaborated with composer Philip Wharton on a song featured in Operamission’s New Cabaret series!  Please see the information below on how you can hear this song!

Composer Michael Ching, baritone Michael Weyandt and conductor Jennifer Peterson are very excited to be presenting a wonderful batch of new songs this Thursday, January 10, 2013, at 8:00pm.

Join operamission for a wine and cheese reception, introducing the winning songs, composers, and singers of the little Cabaret Song Composition Contest we held on Twitter.  Singers, lyricists and composers found each other and risked one of the most intimate collaborations possible under the scrutiny of the public eye.  Not only did this generate great music –– it generated an endless number of stimulating conversations and loving discoveries.

With many of the composers at the piano, an outstanding selection of singers will perform these fresh and wonderful pieces, all written or premiered in the past year.  As an extra treat, singers will also bring you a sneak preview of a few scenes/speed-dates from Michael Ching’s latest opera-in-progress, Speed Dating Tonight, being produced at the Brevard Music Center’s new ‘Opera in a Box’ series this season, created in partnership with Dean Anthony.
