about the mouth – concert – Dec 15, 2008

about the mouth is a cabaret-style concert of new and improvised vocal works. Lia Pas and Helen Pridmore, singers trained in extended vocal techniques, will perform an hour-long concert of compositions written by Lia Pas and John Cage, improv-based scores by Helen Pridmore and Lia Pas, and a bit of Klingon Opera thrown in for good measure.

Please join us at Lydia’s Loft for this exciting evening of drinks and exploration.
