Cornish faculty member Paul Taub spent part of his summer touring Germany with the Seattle Men’s Chorus. The company selected “For a Look or a Touch,” an original work which premiered in Seattle, to be part of this concert series.
With music by Jake Heggie and libretto by Gene Scheer, the title refers to the fact that a gay man in Germany could be arrested for “a look or a touch” and sent to the concentration camps during World War II.“It was a pretty amazing to tour this work in Germany,” said Taub, who was in the orchestra for the tour. Taub, a member of the instrumental faculty, teaches flute at Cornish.
Back in Seattle, Taub will have his first solo performance with Philharmonia Northwest this fall. “I’ll be playing the recently composed Flute Concerto by Latvian composer Pēteris Vasks with this excellent local orchestra conducted by Julia Tai,” he said. The “Northern Lights” concert will be held at St. Stephen’s Episcopal Church, 4805 NE 45th St., Seattle, on Oct. 12.
