Easton Choral Arts Society will present, “Songs from the Heart”. This musical journey directed by, West Lockfaw is part of Michael John Trotta’s work, “For a Breath of Ecstasy” in 7 movements and uses lyrics from poet Sara Teasdale’s anthology Love Songs. It was commissioned in 2017 to celebrate the centennial of Teasdale winning the Pulitzer Prize in Poetry in 1918.
Accompanied by piano, oboe and strings, Trotta’s gorgeous music represents, in his words, “moments of yearning, love, joy and peace in the contemplation of love and nature.” For more information about Michael John Trotta, vist: www.mjtrotta.com
