“Andrea Goodman created the voice for both the pianist and the dancer. She mesmerized an already startled, entranced audience with her piercing callings and warblings of the throated poetry of Cunningham.”

Review of “Maiden Songs” by NY Greek Drama Company, May 1987

 

“Goodman, who is a member of Meredith Monk’s company, composed the music for “Of Sand and Thunder”. She also sang and played the Bandura. Her voice and presence on stage were radiant and pure.”

Rebecca Daniels, Woodstock Times
