Songs of Hope: A Christina Rossetti Song Cycle
August 15, 2020 @ 7:00 pm - 7:30 pm
Premiere online performance of music videos of four Christina Rossetti poems: “Song,” “A Dirge,” “Holy Innocents,” and “A Better Resurrection.” Composed by Theresa Lee-Whiting, and performed by Trina Renay, soprano, and Pej Reitz, collaborative pianist. This is kind of a new way of doing “classical music,” during these times of quarantine and uncertainty. The videos are about love, loss, conflict, new life and eventual renewal, using local events in the last of the four videos. Most of the footage in the videos was done remotely.
