This month, our Assistant Music Director Stearns Matthews will release his second album, a recording of Maury Yeston’s haunting contemporary song cycle December Songs. Stearns has performed the piece right here at UUCM in benefit concerts in December of 2015 and 2016, and this summer he recorded it accompanied by our own Markus Grae-Hauck and Amy Crafton. The album is produced by Randy Crafton and designed by Michael Hetrick. It’s a UU family affair! Stearns will celebrate the release of the CD with a performance and party here at UUCM on Saturday, December 2nd at 7pm, and in New York on Wednesday, December 20th.
