Composing Poetry: Two Poetry-Inspired Pieces for French Horn

Wednesday, June 7, 2017 - 5:30pm to 7:00pm

Please join us for a 2017 Whitman Summer Social at the Copper Room at Hotel Congress as we explore connections between poetry and music with Johanna Lundy, the principal horn of the Tucson Symphony Orchestra. Johanna will perform two brand new pieces for solo horn, inspired by poetry and commissioned from local Tucson composers Dan Coleman and Jay Vosk. Dan and Jay will provide a short conversation about how they seek inspiration from poetry in their compositions. This project is supported in part by a grant from the Arizona Commission on the Arts. Mingling at 5:30pm; performance begins at 6pm.
