What happens when great music, world-class literature, and contemporary prose come together? An enchanted journey! Join us for our season opener to experience a magical voyage through the diverse emotional landscape of our lives. Walk with us through pathos, drama, and the pure joy of live music, poetry, and prose. The program will offer a variety of styles, some old favorites, and some new discoveries. CAS is teaming up with the Kenosha/Racine Poets Laureate who will present original poetry before and during the concert, and with the Racine Public Library, to bring you an exciting evening of word and song.
Current Kenosha/Racine poets laureate Kenyatta Turner and Esteban Colon will offer a special Pre-Concert poetry presentation. Former Poets laureate Stephen Kalmar II (2011); Jean Preston (2013), and Root River Poet Carol Lee Saffioti Hughes will read during the Concert.
