Poets selected by Poetry Society of America Director Alice Quinn will perform contemporary poems on the Orphic theme. A film clip from Marcel Camus’ Black Orpheus will be shown to represent the theme in cinema, and pianist Paul Barnes will captivate the audience with The Orphée Suite for Piano, his amazing transcription of Philip Glass’s symphony Orphée for solo piano. This event is sponsored in partnership with The Poetry Society of America and Red Hen Press.
