ASTER Women's Chamber Choir presents "Hope is a Thing with Feathers: A Salute to Poetry"
Broomfield Auditorium
Broomfield, CO
Share this event:


Where would composers and singers be without poets?  During National Poetry month, ASTER salutes poetry with a concert of musical settings of works by familiar poets including Emily Dickinson and E. E. Cummings, along with poems which were written by Jane, Cassandra and Mrs. George Austen when they were playing a parlour game which was popular during their lifetime. The concert also includes settings of E. Pauline Johnsons poem about a lullaby which birds sing, a poetic text written by a womens choir and a poem by Christa Dickason about a sea lions personal ad seeking love.

ASTER is delighted to welcome Chamber Ensemble con Grazia (CEG) as our special guests.  Grace Asquith has a long association with the choir, both as a pianist and as a composer.  CEG will perform the following pieces, which have special Colorado connections.

Long Division (2018), premiered by Christina Lynn-Craig and Grace Asquith, was inspired by the words of Loveland, Colorado poet, Caroline Orman.  With descriptive detail of the angst and consequences of missing an important day of instruction in elementary school, Carolines poetic genius touches the readers/listeners in their own personal tender spots.  The alternating characters heard in the sung portions and the recitatives highlight the often unspoken dialogues in our minds.  

My Mother Talks of Clouds (2019), commissioned by Chamber Ensemble con Grazia, received an enthusiastic audience response at its premiere on September 6, 2019.  Evoking the expanse of the open prairies of North Dakota and the harsh, lonely life for a young girl nearly a century ago, the colors of the bass flute and harp support the descriptive poetry in the vocal line.  Local composer John Fuerst and his poet sister, Catherine Fuerst, have created numerous magical moments in their ongoing collaborations.

The choir has fallen in love with these pieces and we think that our audience members will too!
