From the composer:
Brad Leithauser’s poems from his collection “Angles and Curves” peer into the details of ordinary lives with surprising results. A retrospective warmth evokes a summer’s evening in the Midwest and swing-era female trios are brought to life in a glimpse of Rodgers and Hart.

Premiere: First performed March 27, 2009, McCulloch Auditorium, Mount Holyoke College, South Hadley, MA. Peformed by Melinda Spratlan (soprano), The Mount Holyoke College Chamber Singers, Kimberly Dunn Adams, conductor.
