River Song Quintet : Foundation Events

61 West Superior Street 
Free Admission

A wide array of collaborations between Los Angeles based River Song Quintet and Ohio poet David Baker.  The three-part event includes semi-improvisatory interplay between David Baker and River Song Quintet guitarist Gregory Uhlmann, followed by the premier performance of “Scavenger Loop,” Baker’s lyric sequence which blends elements of the pastoral elegy with eco-poetic narratives, scored by Gregory Uhlmann for River Song Quintet.  The evening’s concluding piece is a six-movement song cycle, composed by Uhlmann for River Song, using Baker’s poems as libretto.  This special event will mark the premier of several pieces composed specifically for this evening of music and poetry.
