Profs. Nancy Ogle, soprano ((Professor of Music at the University of Maine), and Ginger Yang Hwalek, Ph.D., pianist (instructor in the University of Maine School of Performing Arts) present a hybrid reading/music performance that condenses some of the finest moments of America’s journey through time into a musical work of art. The concert draws on the settings created by noted American poets like W.H. Auden, Emily Dickinson, Walt Whitman, and Lucille Clifton. The concert is accompanied by a narration written and presented by John Burns, Ph.D., Rockford College Assistant Professor of Modern and Classical Languages, that briefly explains the relevance of the poets and poems.
