About Beethoven & Blue Jeans: Poetry, Prose & Verse
Presented January 15 at 7:30 p.m. at the Saenger Theatre, Beethoven & Blue Jeans features our annual exploration of the music of Beethoven. The program also includes two pieces that pair orchestral music with poems read aloud by their local authors. Charles McCaskill, Jr.’s poem describes the loss of the John Sunday House, a historic Pensacola landmark, and it is paired with George Walker’s Lyric for Strings, a lamenting yet beautiful composition. Jamey Jones’ poem vividly explores the flowing of rivers in several metaphoric and literal manifestations. The text will be paired with Tobias Picker’s hushed and hazy Old and Lost Rivers, itself inspired by the high bridge crossing the winding bayous where two rivers converge.
