The Last Dance: Life, Love & Loss in Music, Spoken Word & Movement


Date & Time: 
Feb 17 2018 - 3:00pm - 4:30pm

Friends of Music at Guilford's (FOMAG) annual Midwinter Musicale begins at 3:00 p.m. on Saturday, February 17, in the sanctuary of Guilford Community Church. A propos for Valentine's week, this program is a multimedia consideration of love, as it is woven inevitably through the weft of life and loss, and it includes elements of music, movement, and the spoken word. "Death Speaks," a 25-minute song cycle by Pulitzer Prize-winning composer David Lang, will be performed by mezzo-soprano Jessica Gelter with baritone Tony Grobe, violinist Michele Liechti, guitarist David William Ross, and pianist Keane Southard. . . . Tom Baehr's settings of four gravestone epitaphs and Dylan Thomas's "Do Not Go Gentle Into That Good Night" will be performed by The RIP Singers, an octet of seasoned voices including three choral directors. . . . Actors Adrienne Major and Tom Green will recite a range of inspirational poetry, including selected "Haiku for the Grieving" by Beverly Miller, with interpretive dance and hand-signing by the author. . . . Verandah Porche will read her poetic essay on late husband Richard Coutant's close bond with the property they shared at Packer Corners, veterinarian Laurie Schneski will read a chapter from retired colleague Robin Truelove Stronk's irreverent memoir "Vet Noir," and Valerie Abrahamsen will share an uplifting excerpt from her book "Paranormal: A New Testament Scholar Looks at the Afterlife," based on research into near-death experiences. . . . Admission at the door is $15 and includes a reception of homemade soups, hearty breads, assorted sides, and festive desserts. FOMAG's 52nd season media sponsors are Vermont Public Radio and the Vermont Arts Council. Guilford Community Church is a handicap-accessible facility.
