Singing Words: Celebrating Poetry, Music and the Creative Spirit http://www.artsedgewolfeboro.org/archives/920 http://www.artsedgewolfeboro.org/archives/920#comments Wed, 10 Aug 2011 22:57:31 +0000 admin http://www.artsedgewolfeboro.org/?p=920 Our “Singing Words” event was hugely successful. In the afternoon participants enjoyed a reading by Bar Harbor Poet Christian Barter, followed by a workshop that he conducted concerning the unanswered questions in poems. In the evening participants were treated to a presentation by WordSong, an organization who has had 4 composers set Langston Hughes’ poem “Harlem” to music which was then performed by baritone Aaron Engebreth and pianist Allison d’Amato. The brilliant renditions were interspersed with discussion amongst the composers and the audience.
