Whitman’s words have provided irresistible inspiration to generations of composers. Jeffrey Van collaborates with The Singers as guitarist on his own work, “A Procession Winding Around Me.” René Clausen’s “Three Whitman Settings” and “A Jubilant Song” use swirling melodies and lush harmonies to evoke the texts. The Singers are honored to share the stage with poet Michael Dennis Browne as he reads Whitman’s poetry throughout the concert.
