Event detail
CALENDAR_ADD_TO_MY
 
This year, Call & Response is focusing on the influence of poetry in music.  The concert will feature a new work for string quartet and voice from Pulitzer Prize-winning composer Jennifer Higdon.  Higdon's piece is based on the poetry of former American Poet Laureate W.S. Merwin and carries the title, "In the Shadow of Sirius."  The Cypress Quartet will be joined onstage by soprano Christine Brandes for the performance.  Higdon's new work is a response to the music by Dvorak--The Cypresses, 12 Moravian poems set by the Czech master as love songs for string quartet--and Schubert, his 13th Quartet, known as the Rosamunde.
