In Real Life will feature Mela Sarajane Dailey, Soprano and Martha Mortensen Ahern, Piano, presenting a world premiere of commissioned song cycle for soprano and piano by Grammy - ballot composer Robert Paterson and lyricist David Cote. "In Real Life" is about online dating as experienced by five extraordinary women: often humorous, sometimes heart-breaking. Robert Paterson and David Cote developed this piece specifically for Austin Chamber Ensemble's 35th Season and for Artistic Director & Pianist, Martha Mortensen Ahern and Mela Sarajane Dailey, soprano. At the end of the concert, audiences will have a chance to hear Paterson, Cote and the artists discuss the evolution of this work.

Additional selections to fit the theme for Valentine's Day will be presented by Scott Wallace, Crystal Paull, and others who are featured soloists with 'Icons of Broadway' and 'Life in the City'.
