Music and Dance for Edward Lear

If you are in Oxford for the Edward Lear Bicentennial Conference (two days left to register), you might like to attend Nonsense: with Michael Rosen and The Homemade Orchestra at the Story Museum, on 21 September, 6-7.30 pm. An evening of nonsense and jazz. More information on the event and on the Homemade Orchestra.

On Friday, 9 November 2012 (the date I posted previously was incorrect) Amblongus Pie: Dance, Music, Verse, and Song, at the Peter & Elizabeth C. Tower Auditorium in the Burchfield Penney Art Centre in Buffalo, New York, will include a contemporary musical setting and reading of Edward Lear’s “Nonsense Cookery” in honor of Lear’s 200th birthday.

Julia Bentley, a Chicago based mezzo-soprano, accompanied by pianist Kuang-Hao Huang, along with members of the Lehrer Dance Company, will be performing. Dr. Ann C. Colley, SUNY Distinguished Professor and author of several essays on Lear, is literary advisor to the event.
