"I Hear in my Mind/All of this music...." The Songs of Regina Spektor
Updated: Oct 18, 2019
My friends, I am beyond excited to announce a lecture recital I'll be presenting this month at Providence College, "I hear in my mind/All of this music...." The Songs of Regina Spektor. This project will feature selections by the inimitable singer-songwriter as I attempt, through word and musical example, to analyze and comment on the thoughtfulness and brilliance of Spektor's lyrical and musical content.
I truly believe that Spektor, whose creations are firmly rooted in the music of The Beatles, Nina Simone, Billie Holiday, Joni Mitchell, and others, is a bonafide genius and one of the greatest singer-songwriters of our time. Her songs make me chuckle as often as they incapacitate me and bring me to tears. Spektor, without a doubt, has become one of my biggest influences and inspirations.
If you will be in or near Rhode Island on 10/25, I hope you will consider attending this not-to-be-missed presentation. While you may end up appreciating my insight, I promise you will be captivated by Regina's music.
"I hear in my mind/All of this music...."
