On Sunday, May 26 at 3 p.m. at the Unitarian Church in Montpelier, Vermont, there will be a wonderful event celebrating my late brother Lars’s work as a writer. There will be readings of his poetry and a blog post and performances, including one of his short plays, The Aspirants, and two works on which he and I collaborated. The first is The Falling of Trees for baritone and piano quartet and features baritone Thomas Beard (seen here in A Fleeting Animal in 2015) and the Northern Third Quartet. The second is the premiere of A Psalm for a New Year for chorus and solo viola, with a hand-picked chamber chorus led by Jessica Pierpont with Elizabeth Reid, viola. In both works, Lars wrote the text and I wrote the music.
The event is open to the public and admission is by donation. All donations will go to the Lars Nielsen Scholarship Fund at Norwich University.
