Milligan Orchestra Concert: The Poetry of Music

More About Milligan Orchestra Concert: The Poetry of Music

The Milligan Orchestra, directed by Dr. Kellie Brown, will conclude its season with a spring concert that celebrates National Poetry Month, the largest literary celebration in the world. The orchestra will perform pieces inspired by works of poetry by James Agee, Samuel Coleridge, Octavio Paz, John Donne, William McGonagall, and Oscar Wilde. In collaboration with students and faculty from the college’s English department, each poem represented will be read, followed by the musical interpretation. Jane Hicks, renowned Appalachian poet, will be the special guest reading her poem “Poor Valley Pilgrims,” which celebrates the historic journey of the Carter family to the Bristol Sessions, forever changing the course of music in our country. A composition based on this poem by award-winning composer Evelyn Pursley-Kopitzke, commissioned especially for this concert, will conclude the program.
