Two Roads Converged This 90-minute program features the marriage of classic American poetry with the music of American composers. Our featured major work, Frostiana, by Randall Thompson, is a choral setting of seven poems by Robert Frost. This idyllic cycle of songs is couched in a program highlighting poetry of Walt Whitman, Emily Dickinson and Langston Hughes, among others. The prominent composers featured in the program include the foundational African-American composer William Grant Still, Lori Laitman and the under-performed Jewish-American William Schuman.
The program will be held in the Adult Department of the Racine Public Library. Doors open at 6:45 and the program starts at 7:00 p.m. The program is free and registration is not be required.
