- “To the God of Light and Shadow” composed by Dr. Meredith Brammeier set to poetry by Bonnie Young (read the poem here)
November’s concert theme was inspired by our first commissioned work “To the God of Light and Shadow” by Canzona member and Cal Poly professor Dr. Meredith Brammeier. “There’s an inner soul that’s reaching out for something else, and that’s poetry,” says local poet Bonnie Young whose poem was the catalyst for this new piece. Our concert reflected on these themes of light and shadow with music both serious and light-hearted, contemplative and whimsical. We were joined by the women from the select ensemble PolyPhonics directed by Dr. Thomas Davies. Clarinetist Caroline Tobin was our featured guest artist in the afternoon of musical contrasts.
