October and Poe

Here we are friends, in the heart of fall. In New York the chilly windy days have arrived. We see scenes of fallen colored leaves blowing down the streets and  figures of the macabre appear all around; jack-o-lanterns and witches and other scary creatures associated with this month. And I have one more to add to your October spirit.

Edgar Allan Poe.

This month is simply not complete with some 19th century frightful stories. And as luck would have it I’m performing on a concert dedicated to just that, Poe!

Whitney George’s Curiostiy Cabinet is presenting an evening of music and Poe. There will be original score to silent films from the 1920’s, a retelling of The Raven with puppets, and even a setting of a lesser known poem of his, Evening Star.

It’s really going to be a great evening to celebrate Poe and the season of the macabre. Join us at 7:30p this Thursday at the Center for Fiction (17 E 47th St.)!!
