Whitman, musically

April 23, 2017

A new Kickstarter project is currently seeking modest funds to complete the budget for a symphonic poem for soprano and orchestra. Composer Rob Goorhuis will write the score for Walt Whitman’s poem A Child Said, What Is The Grass from Leaves of Grass.

The world premiere of the completed work will be performed by the Dutch Fanfare Orchestra with soprano Fenna Ograjensek at the Dutch National Championships Finals on November 12, 2017, in Enschede, The Netherlands. Read more on Kickstarter.
