The Casement Fund Song Series Presents Mortality Mansions

If you’re in the NYC area on March 30, consider checking out Herschel Garfein’s new song cycle Mortality Mansions, with texts by former United States poet laureate Donald Hall. Performers are pianist Dmitri Dover and tenor Michael Slattery. The program starts at 7pm at the James Room in Barnard Hall.

More about the program:

Pulitzer Prize-winning novelist Richard Ford and National Book Award-winning poet Jean Valentine will read Donald Hall poems. Professor of Clinical Medicine and Director of the Program in Narrative Medicine Dr. Rita Charon will join the artists in reflections on poet Donald Hall’s guiding themes of love, sexuality and bereavement in old age, and trace the unprecedented adoption of Mr. Hall’s work into the curricula of medical schools across the country. Mr. Hall himself will participate via remote video link from his farmhouse in New Hampshire.

Tickets are free, but you can book them here. Barnard Hall is located on Broadway just north of 116th  Street.
