Artist's Pick: David Yang (Artistic Director)

On selected nights of the festival, I asked past artists of NCMF to choose a surprise Youtube performance as a treat for our audience. Each selection will be preceded by short video introduction to the link. On this, the festival’s final night, I am including two links to send everyone home.

“Erbarme dich” by Johann Sebastian Bach from the St. Matthew Passion, BMV 244Erbarme dich, mein Gott,
Um meiner Zähren willen!
Schaue hier, Herz und Auge
Weint vor dir bitterlich.
Erbarme dich, mein Gott.
Have mercy, my God,
for the sake of my tears!
See here, before you
heart and eyes weep bitterly.
Have mercy, my God.

Louis Armstrong “On the Sunny Side of the Street”
(composed by Jimmy McHugh with lyrics by Dorothy Fields)
Grab your coat and get your hat
Leave your worry on the doorstep
Just direct your feet
To the sunny side of the street
Can't you hear a pitter-pat?
And that happy tune is your step
Life can be so sweet
On the sunny side of the streetI used to walk in the shade
With those blues on parade
But I'm not afraid
This Rover crossed overIf I never have a cent
I'd be rich as Rockefeller
Gold dust at my feet
On the sunny side of the street
