WordSong Retrospective

WordSong Til Now

WordSong celebrates its fourth year with a retrospective concert at St. Paul’s Church, Brookline. In 2008, WordSong embarked on a mission to reconnect musicians and audiences by creating a public conversation about intuitive musical understanding. Since then, we have premiered over 30 new works by living composers, and have worked with many of Boston’s best performers. Now come hear a selection of these multiple settings of classic and modern poems in a full-length concert format for the very first time! Join our community of listeners and musicians for an unusually “traditional” WordSong concert with a few twists thrown in.

Poems by Beddoes, Blake, Blevins Faery, and Roethke
Music by Child, Garfein, Frazin, McDonald, Schnauber, Simon, St. Pierre, and Vores
Performed by Kendra Colton, Ilana Davidson, and Sarah Pelletier, sopranos; Krista River, mezzo-soprano
Shiela Kibbe, Linda Osborn, and Donald St. Pierre, piano.
