Dawn Pierce

Blog post by Blaize Hall, Television-Radio, '15, Georgia, Vermont

Dawn Pierce is a performer, known for a mezzo soprano voice that sounds like "deep, liquid velvet", according to some reviews.  She also works as an assistant professor at Ithaca College, and a private vocal coach.  This week, she juggled coaching three of her students through recitals, coordinating a visiting artist, AND preparing for the American Dissonances concert on Tuesday of FLEFF week.  She is one busy gal!  She had a few thoughts to share on the upcoming concert.

"I am very excited to be involved with FLEFF this year.  It is wonderful to collaborate with artists and technicians from several different genres of art.  I love the creativity and unique approach to the work.  Personally, I am most looking forward to singing an arrangement of Somewhere Over the Rainbow that written for me by one of my dearest friends, Benjamin Costello.  We are doing a new version with two pianos, bass, and trumpet.  It should be a fun evening.  The dissonance theme lends itself to America and the varied citizens of our country who somehow find harmony through their dissonance.  It all depends on perspective....which is something I believe will come across in our performance."
