Their program is a timely, musical exploration of artistic and literary censorship. It features works by notably blacklisted artists Aaron Copland and Dorothy Parker, controversial songs made famous by Billie Holiday and Maya Angelou, and music inspired by banned literature such as Alice in Wonderland and Pierre Louys' sensual Chansons de Bilitis, among others. Featuring Anne Hepburn Smith, soprano; Melinda Becker, mezzo-soprano; Elizabeth Talbert, flute; Sophie Huet, clarinet; Natalie Raney, cello; Anne Rainwater, piano; and an arrangement by composer Jude Traxler. Come for pre-concert coffee and stay for post-concert books brought by The Green Arcade.
