In its ongoing Ivy League series, Chicago’s endlessly innovative Fulcrum Point New Music Project explores poetry and music associated with Princeton University. The impressive roster of poets who attended or have taught at Princeton includes John Berryman, W. S. Merwin, Galway Kinnell, C. K. Williams, Jane Hirshfield, Paul Muldoon, Susan Wheeler, Michael Dickman, and this year’s Pulitzer Prize winner Tracy K. Smith. Princeton composers Steve Mackey, Andy Akiho, Andrea Mazziarello, and Elliot Cole join in this multimedia event of music, electronics, percussion, and drama.
