Performance Dates

  • Sat Nov 06 2021 8:00 PM


Meany Hall – Katharyn Alvord Gerlich Theater

Composer, pianist and singer Gabriel Kahane grafts a deep interest in storytelling to a keen sense of harmony and rhythm. In this intimate solo performance, he presents a new slate of songs selected from thirty-one pieces he composed in October 2020, one for each day of that tumultuous month. This latest work — among the most personal Kahane has written in a decade — is, by design, introspective. Marriage, friendship and fatherhood come to the fore against the ambient grief of a divided country facing down a global pandemic and catastrophic climate change.

One of the finest, most searching songwriters of the day.
— The New Yorker
