Featuring arrangements of traditional ballads by Morten Lauridsen, Jonathan Quick, Patrick Quigley and others, and a setting of the poetry of Walt Whitman in Jeffrey Van’s A Procession Winding Around Me, Artistic Director John Verkuilen writes ”This program does not necessarily center around a thematic goal, but instead aims to illuminate stories we have gathered over many years. We have all been The Wanderer at times, whether we were shrouded by doubt and uncertainty or driven forward through unfamiliar but exciting territory. We encourage everybody to be observant and take great care to learn during these times, and never be afraid to share your story.” Guest guitarist Daniel Mahoney will accompany.
