Musical Miscellany: Photos and assorted memories

Marcia has been singing and playing musical instruments since childhood. Her vocal experience has included a cappella, folk, pop, and classical choral singing. Marcia has been performing with the a cappella group The Accidentals for many years, and she is currently a soloist and choir member for the First Lutheran Church in Montclair, NJ. As a teen she performed with the New England Conservatory Youth Choir in Boston. She sang choral music in NYC for many years with the Euterpean Choral Ensemble, The Occasional Singers (Gil Robbins, conductor), and others. She played bass in the performance group "Lunatune" and was the founder of "The Reputations" (a cappella). 

She has written and recorded lyrics and music in a variety of styles. In 2005 she released "Little Noises," a collaborative 2-CD set of her poems turned into songs by many of her favorite musicians. In 2009 she and Margaret Dorn were commissioned by The Rubin Museum (NYC) to co-write an original performance piece on the theme of mandalas. The piece was performed by The Accidentals at the Museum's Nine Rivers Gala, and again at a concert in the Museum’s Naked Soul (unplugged) series. Marcia and Libby McLaren co-wrote a song for the Nuclear Free Future Energy Mix (Vol 1) (2010, Rising Son Records, available for download here). She also wrote and recorded original music with the children's music trio The Sing or Swim Team, and with the comedy performance group Noh Radio
