The gift of life, the sorrow of death, the eternal earth beneath us: these mysteries have inspired American poets and composers to create some of their greatest works. Philadelphia composers Thomas Whitman and Jan Krzywicki set the words of Walt Whitman and Kenneth Rexroth in moving new music for chamber choir and ensemble.  FELYX-M, a virtuoso chamber chorale drawn from  Mendelssohn Club, will be joined by the Network Ensemble for this premiere performance.
Additional concert added: February 25, 2012, 8pm at the Community Music School in Trappe, PA
