“Unsaid Prayers” Song Cycle
February 26 @ 7:30 pm – 9:00 pm EST
at the Bennington Performing Arts Center (BPAC), 331 Main Street, Bennington VT 05201
Join us for the world premiere of “Unsaid Prayers,” a new song cycle for baritone, soprano and harp by composer Nico Gutierrez to the poetry of Jana Lillie.
The poetry within the cycle was written in direct response to the tensions in our society around racial injustice and gun violence, with an insistent vulnerability that searches for understanding, solidarity, and peace. The work will be performed by baritone Cailin Marcel Manson, soprano Katherine Saik DeLugan, and harpist Jordan Thomas; filling out the program will be art songs by Black composers, reimagined for voice and harp.
