Palaver Strings: Sing to the Moon
October 19, 2018 @ 7:00 pm - 8:30 pm
One event on October 20, 2018 at 7:00 pm
Palaver Strings presents an evening of classical music and spoken word connected. Inspired by Laura Mvula’s song “Sing to the Moon,” this program deals with mental health issues both among musicians and in the world at large. Palaver will perform well-known works by composers who struggled with mental health, including Tchaikovsky, Mussorgsky, and Rachmaninoff, along- side original poems by members of the Patient/Family Advisory Council at McLean Hospital, culminating a poetry workshop series led by Frances Brent and members of Palaver. With this program, Palaver hopes to open up conversation and reduce stigma. Sing to the Moon is part of Palaver’s residency at Boston Center for the Arts.
