In mid-March, I spent the morning with performer Steve Ross, who partners with Wave Hill to bring a mini-series of Cabaret performances to Wave Hill’s annual concert season, and composer Joseph Thalken. Thalken is working with lyricist Barry Kleinbort to create a song for the third and last concert in the series Cabaret and Grand Concourse, when KT Sullivan performs at Wave Hill.  Ross and Thalken talked with me about the Grand Concourse, which celebrates its centennial this year, about the experience of composing and the unique pleasures of performing in Wave Hill’s Armor Hall. In this clip, I am seated on the far left, with Joseph Thalken in the middle and Steve Ross on the far right.
