Claverack Landing presents the World Premiere of Beauty Intolerable, a songbook of 15 songs based on the poetry of Edna St. Vincent Millay with music by Sheila Silver performed by Christine Goerke, dramatic soprano, Deanne Meek, mezzo-soprano, Risa Renae Harman, lyric soprano, and Kelly Horsted, piano.
The program is envisioned as a celebration of Millay’s poetry through music. Composed for the vocal personalities of each of the three singers, the songs reflect Millay’s passion and playfulness. Infused with a hint of jazz, the songs are accessible and engaging to general audiences. The performance of the complete Songbook will include a celebrity actor reading the poetry prior to the performance of the songs. At the First Presbyterian Church, Hudson.
