Photographic elements will supplement the art of vocal and choral song as we take musical delight in the grandeur, the protection and comfort of trees, along with many poetic metaphors, even metaphors of faith and of human peace. New Jersey poet Joyce Kilmer's famous "Trees" will appear in three different musical guises (two of which are world premiere performances!), as will Randall Thompson's setting of the Robert Frost poem, "The Road Not Taken" and a stunning contribution by last season’s Featured Composer Ivo Antognini. Many will recognize Handel's song Where e'er you walk, and Matthias Becker gives Silcher's arrangement of Schubert's Der Lindenbaum a gentle touch of jazz. And a surprise awaits, compliments of nursery lore. Not to be missed!
