Composer Lauren Spavelko has set some of my poems about a miscarriage, second pregnancy and early motherhood to music. These poems come from a (yet unpublished) manuscript titled Baby Book. You might remember that she won an award to have the song cycle performed in Spoleto this July. This month, Lauren, soprano Natasha Lynn Foley & pianist Bethany Cothern are raising funds to record the song cycle.
You can learn more and donate to them through their Indiegogo page. Click through to read sample pages from the score and watch a video in which the three artists discuss the project and their interest in it.
I hope that you will consider supporting the poems, music and women artists.
