The poetry of Wendell Berry hit Congregation Solel pianist Philip Orem close to home, which is why he was moved to compose a song cycle dedicated to his works.
That composition will have its world premiere at Solel in Highland Park on May 13 at 7:30 p.m.
"An Evening of American Song," which is free and open to the public, will feature the Berry song cycle as well as the premiere performance of a song cycle dedicated to the poetry of Langston Hughes.
Orem will accompany soprano Elizabeth Gray and baritone Warren Fremling, who also serves as Solel's music director.
