Faculty artist Gran Wilson presents Orpheus' Son: Sidney Lanier and His Music of Language, 9/26, 8 p.m.

Interweaving music performance with poetry readings, School of Music faculty member Gran Wilson introduces the life story of Baltimore poet and flutist Sidney Lanier. Lanier, who was one of America's most celebrated poets, was a true renaissance man. He was the Peabody Symphony first flutist and served as Lecturer of English Literature at Johns Hopkins University. The program tells Lanier's poignant life story, pieced together with passages of period flute music, some composed by Lanier, and narrative readings of his poetic musical expression. The performance is the culmination of Wilsons extensive study of Laniers art and music, made possible by a UMD Creative and Performing Arts award for arts research. {Will appear in FYI on Sep 26, 2013
