Poet Sharon Webster's comment on our recent Fall program (alas, no more chances to hear except by recording!)
Applause and a huge thank you to composer, Thomas L. Read, for the exciting depth and power of his new a cappella compositions within Late & Soon, Six Climate Choruses.
Based on six poems, the songs speak in a tone that manages to sound like a love letter & a warning bell at the same time. His arrangement of my poem, "Resistance," was astonishing for its subtlety and dramatic handling. It felt as though the poem had been increased - or perhaps completed – by the collaboration between Social Band and Mr. Read. Likewise for the other pieces that make up Late and Soon, Songs of the Heedless and the Wise.
... this stirring performance by the 22 soaring voices that are Social Band, masterfully directed by Amity Baker with a zen-blend of craft, wisdom & cheer!! The performance sings eloquently of the perils and promises that swirl in our natural world.
