What: The marriage of Poetry and Music opens the doors to a new universe, in which  the mysteries of our lives can be further gauged and, perhaps, explained. From the glittering insignificance of a minute ant strolling around a person’s neck to the thick, heaving mud of the war, this marriage reaches far beyond the merely describable; it reaches the very essence of our own multifaceted realities, the ones we create and destroy every day, departing from the realm of possible to land where mystery lies in wings of insects, colours, bullets. Somewhere where we’re mystery and mystery is everywhere.

Poetry by Roger McGough, Rober Graves, Audrey Ardern-Jones, William Shakespeare, Adélia Prado, Jessie Pope, Eva Dobel, Winifred May Letts, William Blake, Robert Frost, and others.

Music by Jacques Ibert, Ferdinando Carulli, Heitor Villa-Lobos, Giuseppe Verdi, Claude Debussy, Mario Ferraro, Chiquinha Gonzaga, Marin Marais, Eric Satie, J. S. Bach, and others.

The Poetry & Music Ensemble: Reading: Audrey Ardern-Jones, Music: Lucas Jordan (flute) & Fabricio Mattos (guitar)
