Poet Mary Oliver by Josh Reynolds for “The Los Angeles Times,” taken near her home on Cape Cod.
I was delighted to see this story out of the Breckenridge Music Festival. While Brahms is certainly no “slouch,” I was particularly pleased to see that Helen Blackburn, principal flutist for the Dallas Opera Orchestra, is also performing composer Jake Heggie’s flute concerto, “Fury of Light,” based on the poem “Sunrise” by American poet Mary Oliver (see the photo above).
Catch the details of the concert right here.
