Seasons of Her Life – Spring 2002
Music illustrating just that, including “The Harp Weaver”, Elinor Remick Warren’s musical adaptation of Edna St. Vincent Millay’s 1922 Pulitzer Prize-winning poem, with guest artists Gerald Whittington, baritone, and Emily Laurance, harp; and Claude Debussy’s “Salut printemps”.
Our summer pieces, all involving birds, deal with our nurturing whatever is new. The autumn pieces are a rueful celebration of our children or our creations, in which we recognize their growth and begin to say good-bye. Our winter piece portrays the sacrificial cost of creation, and our spring pieces celebrate its transformation into new life.
Performed on Friday, May 21, 2002.
