Poetry in Motion—Where I Stand
Sunday, Sept. 1 through Sunday, Oct. 20.
Poetry in Motion, in its eighth year, is Wilton Library’s annual poetry program for teens in grades 7 – 12. This year’s theme is Where I Stand. This can be interpreted figuratively or literally. Students are invited to submit original poems (serious or humorous; short or long). Approximately 35 poems will be selected by a student board for a two-performance event in March 2014 at the library. Poems will be paired with art, music and/or dance for the live performances. Poems can be performed by the student poet or by someone else. Submit poems as a Word document to firstname.lastname@example.org by October 20, 2013. Call Susan Lauricella at 203-762-3950, ext. 243 for information.
Connecticut’s Own Concert: Storytelling Oboes by Oboe Duo Agosto
Sunday, Sept. 29, 4 – 5 p.m.
Oboe Duo Agosto was created in 2009 by oboists Ling-Fei Kang and Charles Huang with the goal of promoting the oboe’s popularity through original duos, arrangements and newly commissioned work. Storytelling Oboes is a concert based on music inspired by poems, folktales, folk songs, myths and fables from all over the world. These stories deal with life, love, and allegory. Pieces by composers Vaughan Williams, Dorati, Pixiguinha, and others will be performed. See the library’s registration link for more information about the duo. Registration strongly suggested. Pre-registrants should arrive by 3:50 to be guaranteed seating; wait-listed and walk-in registrants will be admitted after 3:50 if space is available.
