Dodge Poetry at NJPAC: PoemJazz

April 22, 2016 @ 8:00 pm

Three-time U.S. Poet Laureate Robert Pinsky is joined by Grammy-winning pianist, composer and arranger Laurence Hobgood in a program presented as part of Dodge Poetry at NJPAC.

PoemJazz is neither poetry set to music nor merely poems recited to musical accompaniment. In this unique collaboration, a voice speaking poetry has a role like that of a horn: Speech, with its own poetic melody and rhythm, is in conversation with the melody and rhythm of the music.

The three-part Dodge Poetry at NJPAC series, presented in partnership with the Geraldine R. Dodge Poetry Festival, continues with Oigo Cantar a América on May 27.

Attend all three for only $30. Click here! (Note: Select your number of packages and then “select” and “save” each of the shows before advancing. Must buy all three.)
