David Morneau's Release Party for "LOVE SONGS" Thursday, 11/21 at 7:30 p.m. [Description] 5of4 Music, in cooperation with Composers Concordance Records, is celebrating the release of David Morneau’s Love Songs, an album of ten genre-crossing songs that combine Shakespeare’s sonnets with contemporary poetry. The celebration will feature readings of the poems from the album by their authors, as well as the opportunity to listen to selected tracks from the album. Each song features a different poet, who was involved in the selection of the paired sonnet. The goal was to present a variety of perspe ctives on love, which is often the subject of songs. Love, when presented by Shakespeare in his Sonnets, is complex and multi-faceted. It has very little in common with the idea of love presented in many of the popular songs of the last century. The poetry in Love Songs is varied and subtle in its perspectives. Thursday, November 21, 2013. 7:30PM Gallery MC 549 West 52nd Street, 8th (Between 10th and 11th Avenue), New York, NY $10 (includes admission and refreshments) readings by: Austin Alexis Patricia Carragon Cindy Sostchen-Hochman George Held Evie Ivy
