UMaine faculty members Nancy Ellen Ogle and Ginger Yang Hwalek will present a concert, “Dear Darwin,” celebrating their forthcoming CD of this new song cycle on Parma Recordings. Based on a book of poems by Kathleen Lignell Ellis, these twenty-six songs comprise an “abc-darium,” engaging Darwin’s ideas from the point of view of each letter of the alphabet. Music composed by Scott Brickman, who will also narrate the program, with visual projections and graphics by Susan Groce.
