Fay Victor and Myra Melford, Workshop Performance: October 3, 2019 (Updated last month)
The Poetry Center presents Fay Victor and Myra Melford, with a workshop performance and conversation. The two artists, working for the first time as a duo, Victor on vocals and Melford on electronic piano, combine composition and improvisation across a selection of original songs. Throughout, Victor and Melford engage in conversation with each other, and at intervals with the audience. The workshop performance was the first in a two-event program, with a performance following the same evening at the Center for New Music, downtown San Francisco, as part of The Poetry Center's In Common Writers Series, supported by the Walter & Elise Haas Fund.
