Guest Master Class: Ricky Ian Gordon, composer

Wednesday, January 24, 2018

7:00pm, Earl V. Moore Building, Britton Recital Hall

 

Ricky Ian Gordon is one of  America's most acclaimed composers of songs.  According to The New York Times “If the music of Ricky Ian Gordon had to be defined by a single quality, it would be the bursting effervescence infusing songs that blithely blur the lines between art song and the high–end Broadway music of Leonard Bernstein and Stephen Sondheim. It’s caviar for a world gorging on pizza."

Through the generosity of Michigan Opera Theater, Gordon will conduct a master class with five pianist/vocalist teams from the School of Music Theatre and Dance, performing songs chosen specifically for them by the composer.
