Reflections in Poetry and Music
October 10, 2017 / 7:00 P.M.
Local composers Don Follmer and Ryan Main have created musical compositions that reflect and interpret the poetry of Arlin Buyert. This is the premier performance of their works, performed by cellist Sascha Groschang and pianist Dr. Elisa Bickers. Arlin will be reading the poems, which are from two of his books, Family Photos and Oh Say Can You See.

No More! is a reflection on the senseless loss of life due to gun violence in the United States. The choral parts are a setting of two ideas: the words “no more” and one line from Arlin Buyert’s poem “In the Shadow of the Bars”, which is a series of reflections on conversations the author had with inmates.

Overwatch Press has just published several of Arlin’s poems.
