Ross Care is originally from Harrisburg, though he's lived in California for many years. He's coming back, though, for this concert of some of his work. There's incidental music for The Glass Menagerie and A Midsummer Night's Dream, song cycles of James Joyce and William Blake poems, and music from Alice Through the Looking Glass.

And of course, singing a few solos, yours truly.

Bright cap and streamers,
He sings in the hollow:
Come follow, come follow,
All you that love.
Leave dreams to the dreamers
That will not after,
That song and laughter
Do nothing move.

With ribbons streaming
He sings the bolder;
In troop at his shoulder
The wild bees hum.
And the time of dreaming
Dreams is over--
As lover to lover,
Sweetheart, I come.

You can also purchase tickets by e-mailing Cheryl. It's been a lot of fun working on the concert, even if I have been turning up to rehearsals half dead from everything else that's been going on lately. I really miss working on classical music in ensembles. The thought of joining an orchestra for the first time in eight years this fall at West Chester U makes me giddy.
