From an article in the Califonia Chronicle, Victoria Kirsch speaks about the program:
"This, And My Heart does more than vividly bring Emily Dickinson to life," says Victoria Kirsch, who has worked with major and regional opera companies, including Los Angeles Opera, and who now serves as music director for the Operetta Foundation and Opera Arts and curates programs for the USC Fisher Museum and other arts institutions. "It traces the themes Emily returns to again and again in her work – nature, love, God, and death. At the same time, the reading seem to ´amplify´ the songs, giving them added vibrancy and depth."The program will include songs by Aaron Copland, Tom Cipullo, Lori Laitman, and Steve Heitzeg. Tickets are free and are available through Eventbrite.
