Blue Hour in Tallahassee, Florida

  • Florida State University Ruby Diamond Concert Hall 222 South Copeland Street Tallahassee, FL, 32304 United States (map)

The Blue Hour features Grammy-winning singer Luciana Souza in a song cycle written by a collaborative of five leading composers – Rachel GrimesAngélica NegrónShara NovaCaroline Shaw, and Sarah Kirkland Snider. The text that serves as the libretto is by 2017 Windham-Campbell Prize winner Carolyn Forché. The excerpted poem, “On Earth,” is from Forché’s 2003 collection Blue Hour. The remarkable poem takes the form of an abecedarium: a listing of images, thousands of them, in alphabetical order, like a flurry of memories from a life coming to its end.
