On Sunday afternoon, October 24, the New Haven based vocal trio, Mirror Visions Ensemble delighted an intimate audience in Heath Commons with their recital of American songs about food and eating.

The trio, comprised of Jesse Blumberg, Scott Murphree, and Vira Slywotzky, accompanied on piano by Richard Pearson Thomas, performed a program in two sets, the first half comprised of songs adapted from recipes, menus and other existing arrangements. The second half of the performance was a special preview of a new cantata, "Know Thy Farmer" writen by Thomas, that explores the movement of sustainable eating through the menus and writings of chef Dan Barber. "Know Thy Farmer" will officially premier worldwide in New York City at the Merkin Concert Hall on November 9th. Their performance left the audience hungry for more, and perhaps for the wine and cheese reception that followed.

Congratulations to the performers on a fantastic, entertaining program. And thank you for sharing your new work and extraordinary talent with the Hopkins community.
