how do i find you
"I am so excited to return to Merkin Hall, where so many special musical memories live for me. The space has a way of fostering intimate and inspiring experiences, on both sides of the stage."
– Sasha Cooke
Two-time Grammy Award winning mezzo-soprano Sasha Cooke and pianist Kirill Kuzmin perform how do I find you, an album-length concert of works commissioned by Cooke during the height of the COVID-19 pandemic. Featuring songs by composers Caroline Shaw, Missy Mazzoli, Nico Muhly, Gabriel Kahane and Kamala Sankaram, and lyricists Mark Campbell, Kelley Rourke, Todd Boss and more, the album has been nominated for a 2023 Grammy. With this project, Cooke prompted some of the most innovative composers working today to capture our shared experience of this global event in an intimate, powerful and personal musical journey.
The concert will be followed by a talkback with Sasha Cooke and Kamala Sankaram, Lembitt Beacher, Kelley Rourke, Frances Pollock, Timo Andres and Mark Campbell.
