Write On is happy to resume our collaboration with Midsummer’s Music, Poetry Meets Music. At one concert in each of Midsummer’s series offerings, a poet will read a poem written in response to a piece of music to be performed. Poets were given recordings in advance with no identifying information as to the title, composer, era, etc., and were asked not to look up this information. The result is a poem composed entirely in response to the emotions or memories the music evokes.
For tonight’s concert, we are pleased to present Baileys Harbor poet, June Nirschl. Tonight’s concert is 19th Century French Rapture with music by Louis Vierne and Charles-Marie Widor. To order tickets, please visit Midsummer’s Music.
June Nirschl has lived in Door County for more than twenty years. She has published three chapbooks of poetry. Her poems have been awarded the Hal Prize from the Peninsula Pulse and the Jade Ring from the Wisconsin Writers Association and have been published in numerous publications.
