Faculty Concert: "Letters, Lyrics, & Love Songs"
Nora Suggs, flute, John Arnold, guitar
Patricia Koch Budlong, soprano, Mark McKenna, narrator

Sunday, January 24, 2010 – 4:00 PM
Peter Hall – Hurd Campus, Moravian College

Admission: $15 general admission / $10 seniors & students

This interdisciplinary performance blends theatre and music. Through readings, monologues, character sketches, narrator Mark McKenna introduces music – ranging from 17th century songs for lute to settings of contemporary American poetry – performed by Two-Part Invention (flutist Nora Suggs & guitarist John Arnold) and soprano Patricia Koch Budlong. Explore life, love, and loss in the words and music of Appalachian story telling modern poetry, and Elizabethan England; in a music tribute to the memory of a friend; and in the internal music of a madhouse. Hear the sorrows of the American Civil War, and follow a joyous series of modern pets, misbehaving badly, and loving every minute of it! Letters, Lyrics, & Love Songs brings a new dimension to a concert performance, setting each musical selection firmly on a very personal and human stage.
