Host

We are thrilled to welcome back Spire Duo, soprano Emma Rose Lynn and pianist Andrew Pham, in "Her Light Escape", a program of poetry and music for soprano and piano that mirrors the cyclical nature of the changing seasons.

Ample street parking is available. Metro #5 or #44. Our house is high off the street and it's thirty steps to the front door. Attendees will be asked to make a donation (minimum $10) all of which goes to the musicians. Please bring any drinks and snacks you'd like to share.

Note: Please do not arrive early unless you have a special need and have communicated with me. Both hosts and musicians require preparation and set up time. The start time (7:30) means that is the time you should arrive, and you can expect the program will start slightly later. Thanks for your consideration.

We begin our journey with the changing colors and falling leaves of autumn, venture through the episodic slumps of the winter, rejoice in the burgeoning of new life in the spring, and arrive in the welcome quietude of a warm summer, reflecting on both sentimental moments of the past as well as life's present beauty. The words of master poets such as Emily Dickinson, W. H. Auden, and Robert Louis Stevenson capture the joy, dejection, wonder, and renewal of a year in a life well-lived through the music of composers such as Benjamin Britten, André Previn, Dominick Argento, and more.
