HCS Presents "The Poet Sings"

Experience the Creativity and Mystery

Step into the lives of poets and composers this Saturday evening as we explore the intimate connection between poetry and music. The experience begins the moment you walk into the venue. The Foundry narthex will be transformed into a Victorian Era grand house's library, and you will be surrounded by quotes and photographs of the masters who are showcased in "The Poet Sings."

Vignettes of a writer's flip-top desk, flickering candles, a pipe, pen and paper will give the illusion that our poet has momentarily stepped away from his work, and you are sneaking into this private world of creativity and mystery.
