Mr. Tambourine Man

Saturday, February 11 at 7:30 PM

Brendle Recital Hall on the campus of Wake Forest University


Celebrated Soprano Lindsay Kesselman sings American composer

John Corigliano’s powerful Mr. Tambourine Man: Seven Poems

of Bob Dylan with the Piedmont Wind Symphony. A fantastic and
exuberant Prologue precedes five searching and reflective

monologues that form the core of the piece; and the Epilogue:

Forever Young makes a kind of folk-song benediction after the

cycle's close. Dramatically, the inner five songs trace a journey

of emotional and civic maturation for a very moving
musical experience.


James Barnes’ personal Third Symphony, commissioned by the

US Air Force Band, progresses from the composer’s deepest

darkness of despair in losing his baby daughter Natalie all the way

to the brightness, fulfillment, and joy of his son Billy being

born a year later.
