Our exploration of the connection between music and poetry continues in this fascinating new series curated by concertmaster Margaret Batjer. Former three-term Poet Laureate Robert Pinsky is the special guest for the second concert in our new Westside Connections series. Praised for the musical energy of his words, the prolific, award-winning Pinsky contributes his insights about poetry to a lively discussion about words, music and social meaning. The night’s musical performance features two pieces that demonstrate the evocative power of artistic expression.
“...our Westside friends deserve an equally rich opportunity to explore with us the glorious repertoire of chamber music.” – Music Director Jeffrey Kahane
