The theme of the program is “Finding Meaning in Text,” referencing the musical selections with words from William Shakespeare, St. Francis of Assisi, William Thackeray, A. A. Milne, e. e. cummings, Robert Louis Stevenson, Emily Dickinson, and more. What comes first? Emotional, moving music, or thought-provoking, passionate words? The exquisite combination of lyrics and music is, oftentimes, what imprints a song in our heart and brain.
