Hiya, it's me, Eric Stern! I'm bursting with new songs, they're spilling from my accordion and lunting from my oud like the smoke from Delphic offerings and I am ready to share them, with you. Will you come listen? I'll keep the price low as I too am rich in many things but silver. Come! Our pomegranate is ripe!
Eric Stern tells stories with music. He’s appeared on NPR and performed at the Kennedy Center,The Great American Music Hall, Joe’s Pub in NYC in San Francisco, throughout the Northwest, and internationally from Portland to Paris to Poland.
Eric Stern is best known for being the founder and artistic director of Vagabond Opera, an ensemble that has achieved worldwide success. Vagabond Opera was created in 2002 by U.S. and European-trained opera singer and composer Eric Stern. Then disillusioned with the classical opera world, Stern created a new context for opera: Performance on a more intimate scale incorporating not only opera but elements of Weimar Cabaret, Arabic and Balkan forms, and the original music that sprang from the ensemble’s fertile creative work.
Stern is fluent in a variety of genres from jazz piano to Balkan accordion, to Opera. His compositions reflect his scope.
