COVID Live Event - Songs of Hope: A Christina Rossetti Song Cycle
August 15, 2020
Saturday at 7 PM – 7:30 PM
Premiere online performance of music
videos of four Christina Rossetti poems: “Song,” “A Dirge,” “Holy Innocents,” and “A Better Resurrection.” Composed by Theresa Lee-Whiting, and performed by Trina Renay, soprano, and Pej Reitz, collaborative pianist. We've been finding a new way of doing “classical music,” during these times of quarantine and uncertainty. The videos are about love, loss, conflict, new life and eventual renewal, using local events (Binghamton, NY) in the last of the four videos. Most of the footage
in the videos was done remotely.
