July - At the Kitchen Table with Rinde and Ellen: The theatre of Ellen McLaughlin of Angels in America and Rinde Eckert, known for his Kennedy Center performances and little men with big ideas characters, juxtaposed with the poetry of Victoria Chang and Allison Joseph, carries the viewer into a spin of story floating between the poetic and the theatrical. This event will be held in the East Wing.
December - The spiritual depth of Morten Lauridsen’s music lifts us to the sacred. This music, in conversation with the lyric poetry of Amber Flora Thomas and the works of California State Poet Laureate Dana Gioia and poet Peggy Shumaker, will make for a thrilling venture into the radiant beauty of soul language. This event will be held in the East Wing.
February - Composer Sophia Serghi and writer Nancy Schoenberger combine to present a multi-art performance piece comprising original music, poetry and artwork, inspired by the imagery of the 22 cards of the Tarot’s Major Arcana. This piece is presented in conversation with the narrative poetry of Judy Grahn and Brynn Saito.
April - Poets selected by Poetry Society of America Director Alice Quinn will perform contemporary poems on the Orphic theme. A film clip from Marcel Camus’ Black Orpheus will be shown to represent the theme in cinema, and pianist Paul Barnes will captivate the audience with The Orphée Suite for Piano, his amazing transcription of Philip Glass’s symphony Orphée for solo piano.
