Dawn- Colby College Chorale with the Colby Kennebec Choral Society Directed by Eric Christopher Perry

Sat. Apr 7 @ 7:30 pm - 9:30 pm

- Free

Hosted by Colby College, Dawn highlights the origins of literary styles and movements. The performance reaches back to Aesop’s fables, moves to texts from the Old Testament and first-century Chinese authors, to Shakespeare, Impressionists, and Modernists. Featured works include “Soleils Couchants,” a gorgeous setting of Verlaine’s famous poem by Quebec composer Robert Ingari, American composer Jay Mobley’s take on beloved 20th century children’s literature, and “Walkers with the Dawn,” a stirring work by Francine Trester based on works by Langston Hughes.
