An Afternoon with Cellist and Spoken Word Artist,
and special guest, Jeffri Lynn Carrington
Making the Word Flesh
Poems and Music of Satisfied and Unsatisfied Desire
Saturday, March 10, 3:00 pm – 5:00 pm
The afternoon will be filled with “Musical Portraits” – Soul ravishing original music by Daniel, composed with the inspiration of individual people and their journeys – as well as the poetry of Rumi, Kabir, William Stafford, Naomi Shihab Nye and others.
Jeffri, an exquisite vocalist with a rich, evocative range, will join us for part of the program, in songs written around the poems of those same poets. Be prepared to, in the words of poet Derek Walcott, “feast on your life.”
This afternoon will be unlike anything you have experienced before!
Pre-registration required. Limited space, register today!
