Composer/Page-Turner to the Stars

Minnesota composer David Evan Thomas has not one but TWO new works being performed this weekend:

–a cantata called Seasons of the Spirit, performed by Pastiche, a faculty ensemble at the College of St. Benedict/St. John’s University;

–and Lonely Hearts, an R-rated song cycle to poems by Wendy Cope.

DET is also the elegant gentleman who turns pages at the Schubert Club’s International Artist Series concerts and other prestigious venues. (At the Joshua Bell recital last weekend, he was definitely the best dressed person on stage!) He tells this story about a clothing-related incident at one concert:

One evening, Stephen Prutsman arrived wearing a black shirt without a tux, which he’d somehow forgotten. So he got my jacket, shirt & tie; I turned all black.
