Write On is happy to continue 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 poet Pete Thelen. Tonight’s concert is Bach to the Future.  To order tickets, please visit Midsummer’s Music

Pete Thelen considers himself to have been very fortunate in life to be a husband, father, son, grandfather, uncle, friend, veteran, expatriate, believer, traveler, and a street musician with poetic tendencies.
