Pitchfork reports that yesterday, after an audience refused to quiet down for her performance at a fashion show in Tokyo, Fiona Apple stormed offstage. All we can say: The crowd must have been pretty oblivious to musical talent if they were capable of ignoring FIONA APPLE.
Case in point: check out Apple’s latest collaboration with filmmaker Paul Thomas Anderson: a music video of the song “Hot Knife.”
In September, the London Sinfonietta presents a new production of Olga Neuwirth’s American Lulu. Check out a preview video below.

A revised version of “The Ballet of the Soul,” my choral setting of words by Beach Boys lyricist and poet Stephen John Kalinich, will be performed during Fall Convocation at Westminster Choir College on September 3 at 4:30 PM in Bristol Chapel. Under the direction of Magdalena Delgado, one of our talented choral conducting graduate students, twenty members of the incoming class will be singing the piece. Excited to rehearse it with them next week.
