With composer Jonathan Santore and poet Peggy Johnson

Saint Catherine of Sienna Church, Manchester, NH
Join Jonathan Santore and Peggy Johnson for an insightful discussion about Requiem: Learning to Fall. Commissioned by the Yeoman’s Fund for the Arts, Santore’s choral-orchestral work uses texts by Peggy Johnson inspired by Philip Simmons’ bookLearning to Fall, a reflection on the art of living and his experiences with Lou Gehrig's disease (ALS). Come and discover how the music was created!
Local educator and artist Nanette Constant has designed a glass mosaic to reflect Philip Simmons’ book Learning to Fall.Participants will work with the artist to make this project. A raffle will be held at our concert on May 21 and May 22 to win this unique mosaic. All proceeds will go to the ALS Association.
Space is limited!
