Message from Carey: Our Spring Season

Dear HPM, I am thrilled to announce our program for the spring concert and excited to get to work with you. We will be focusing on music of the American living composers Eric Whitacre, Libby Larsen, Carol Barnett and PDQ Bach aka Peter Schickele.

The other composers bring us modern, American-style madrigals focusing on love and nature with a flare of humor presented by the satirical master, PDQ Bach in his “My Bonnie Lass She Smelleth” and “Two Lips”.
