Shakespeare Anyone?

David Morneau's "No Pianos Allowed" concert is on Wednesday, 12/8.

David will be presenting three songs from his LOVE SONGS PROJECT:

  • "Behind Corneal Gates," Shakespeare's Sonnet 56 with poetry by Patricia Carragon
  • "Music In Me," Shakespeare's Sonnet 8 with poetry by Susan Maurer
  • "Now I Love You Best," Shakespeare's Sonnet 115 with poetry by Roxanne Hoffman

These will be performed by Mary Hubbell (soprano), Roberta Michel (flute) and Ernesto Ramos (guitar).

LOVE SONGS is a new songwriting project that pairs sonnets by William Shakespeare with poems by contemporary writers. Each collaborating poet selects one sonnet and pairs it with a work of their own—an existing poem or one written especially for the project.  David is setting each pair to music.
You can preview "Behind Corneal Gates"  at the 5OF4 website: http://5of4.com/love_songs/sounds.html

The text for all 3 pieces as well the other pairs selected for the project can be read at the 5OF4 website:

Also Robert Voisey and David Morneau will performing MONKEY LAB.
