Eve Beglarian

February 22 @ 7:30 pm - 9:00 pm

On February 22 at 7:30 p.m., the Clement and Linda McGillicuddy Humanities Center and the UMaine School of Performing Arts will host composer and performer Eve Beglarian. Here’s her description of her set list for the concert:
 
“The first half of tonight’s performance offers you some of the pieces I made in response to a four-month journey I made by kayak and bicycle down the Mississippi River in 2009. Some of the pieces are based on historical events: (the 1927 Flood, the Siege of Vicksburg during the Civil War…) and others are inspired by things people said to me along the way (“I am really a very simple person”, “All good is luck”…)
 
“The second part of the performance is a selection of settings of the poetry of James Tate I have been making in collaboration with James Moore, Andie Tanning, and Jim Fletcher. (Andie and Jim can’t be here this evening, so we have Josh and Beth guesting in instead.)
The two projects meet in the middle with my setting of James Tate’s poem It Happens Like This, which is both part of The River Project and What are the Chances?
 
“It’s always good to have a goat at the center of things.”
