From the Stage at Krannert Center: Song and Poetry with Nathan and Julie Gunn and the Jupiter String Quartet

Jason Croft of IPM and Bridget Lee-Calfas of Krannert Center will present “From the Stage at Krannert Center: Poetry and Song with Nathan and Julie Gunn and the Jupiter String Quartet”.  This joint production, recorded last October in Foellinger Great Hall at Krannert Center, features works from several 20th-century composers. All of the pieces performed were based on works of poetry, including George Butterworth’s “Six Songs from A Shropshire Lad,” based on the writings of A.E. Houseman; and modern-day composer Jennifer Higdon’s “Dooryard Bloom,” based on Walt Whitman’s When Lilacs Last in the Dooryard Bloom’d. This unique broadcast will also include interviews with the performers, Nathan and Julie Gunn and the Jupiter String Quartet.
