Spring Concert: Sunday, May 12th, 7 p.m.
Our spring concert, called "Poetic License," will be a selection of brilliant poetry set by fantastic composers.
Our concert is in memory of long-time Cantilena member and writer, Mordena Babich - hence the focus on the union of words and music!
Included on the program will be Holmes' setting of Kenyon's poem "Let Evening Come," Daley's setting of Yeats' poem "The Lake Isle of Innisfree," settings of e.e. cummings by Persichetti, settings of Alarcon by Roger Bourland, and of course a little Shakespeare.
We are delighted that Scott Wheeler accepted our commission to set Lewis Carroll's poem "The Jabberwocky" -- a favorite of Mordena's -- to be premiered at this concert.
