    “Bill” (Showboat) – NYU Master’s Recital

    Hey friends 👋 Today’s #WeeklyWednesday is another favorite from my NYU Master’s Recital 😊🎓 I’m really grateful for that moment and for the incredibly gifted friends I’ve gotten to work with at NYU. Hoping for positive resolutions for those who’ve had their recitals postponed due to corona virus 🙏 “Bill” was composed by Jerome Kern, with lyrics by P.G. Wodehouse. It was cut from an earlier show, but found a home in the revolutionary 1927 musical “Showboat.” Oscar Hammerstein revised some lyrics to suit the character of Julie LaVerne (originally played by speakeasy star Helen Morgan). I don’t remember hearing this piece before my first semester at #NYU, but I…

    “My Ship”

    Today’s #WeeklyWednesday is one of the earliest pieces I worked on during my time at NYU (for our group Song Analysis class), and what means the most to me about visiting this song again in my Master’s Recital is the different and more hopeful way I was able to connect to it this time.  “My Ship” was written for the 1941 musical “Lady in the Dark,” with music by Kurt Weill and lyrics by Ira Gershwin. The show is pretty obscure now, but was groundbreaking at the time, due to its focus on psychoanalysis and usage of music to further the plot/action and character development.  My earlier recording (at home,…

    “I Have Confidence”

    Today’s #WeeklyWednesday is the opening of my NYU Master’s recital! I can’t imagine a more fitting song to describe how I felt in that particular moment and about the future in general.  The Sound of Music is possibly my favorite musical of all time (if you want to know more, check out this paper I wrote about it 😉). “I Have Confidence” has music and lyrics by Richard Rodgers. It was written for the movie version of The Sound of Music, which was made after the death of the brilliant lyricist Oscar Hammerstein II, who collaborated with Rodgers on the rest of the work.  This was the only piece in…
