Music of the Great Poets

Albany Pro Musica is opening its concert season with a program that blends the words of great poets like Walt Whitman, Robert Frost, and P.B. Shelley with a dozen composers including Daniel Pinkham and James Mulholland. The evening will feature an amusing Shakespearean set: a Shakespeare poem about snoring, a new “Shakespeare” poem, and a jazz arrangement of a Shakespearean work. The seasoned voices of Albany Pro Musica will be joined by Capital District Youth Chorale for two works.
The Music of the Great Poets will be performed on Saturday (Oct. 18) at St. Paul’s Episcopal Church in Albany and Sunday (Oct. 19) at the First United Methodist Church in Delmar. Tickets for the concerts are $20, $18 for seniors, or $10 for students. Tickets are available at the door or by calling 438-6548.
