Music, poetry at the Pines Friday
An evening of music and poetry featuring Rebekah Alexander, soprano, and David McLellan, guitarist, will be held at the Cathedral of the Pines on Friday at 7 p.m.
The presentation, entitled “This is my letter to the World…” combines music with some of the best-loved poetry by the likes of Emily Dickinson, Emily Bronte, John Clare and William de la Mare.
Alexander is a gifted recitalist who has performed with many opera organizations, including Guerilla Opera, Worcester Opera Works, Boston Opera Collaborative and New England Light Opera, and more. She is a strong advocate of contemporary music and has performed works by Heggie, Crumb, Cage and many others. She performed the role of Phedre in Socrate by Satie with Opera Hub this month.
McLellan studied classical guitar at the Hartt School of music, the New England Conservatory and the Aspen Music Festival. He has taught at the Hartt School and at the University of Connecticut while giving solo recitals throughout New England. He has toured in Great Britain and performed in music festivals in the U.S. and South America.
The program is free and open to the public.
