Jerome Kitzke’s (CRF 2003, DG 2017) new work “I Am Waiting,” commissioned by the NakedEye Ensemble and featuring guest actor/singe Lisa Karrer, will premiere in Media, PA on March 10th. There will be a second performance in Lancaster, PA on March 16th. NakedEye Artistic Director, Ju-Ping Song, fashioned a concert called “Pity the Nation” after one of the two Ferlinghetti poems featured in Kitzke’s piece. Originally written as a pre-2020 election anti-Trump statement, “I Am Waiting” stands today as a work that leans hard against all that the 45th president has wrought. 

Also on the program is the world premiere of The Secret of Growth by Theresa Wong (CRF 2012).

The concert will be for live and virtual audiences. For tickets and other info, click here.
