Poetry Of Music: Many Lands, One Song

This innovative concert is the culmination of a collaborative partnership between FCS Master Singers, Concert Choir and Treble Choirs , select Fairfax County Public Schools, and renowned composers.  It provides an opportunity for us to display the broad artistic talent of the youth in our community, melding together the creative mediums of the written word, art and music.  Poems, written by students in the English Department, are submitted to FCS commissioned composers, who then select a single poem or multiple poems to become the text for original pieces of music to be premiered at this concert.  Simultaneously, students within the Art Department of these same schools, create artwork representative of the poetic theme, which will be displayed at the concert.

Treble Choirs ~ Douglas Beam, composer ~ Crestwood Elmentary School, Springfield, VA
Concert Choir ~ Jim Papoulis, composer ~ Glasgow Middle School, Lincolnia, VA
Master Singers ~ Douglas Byler, composer ~ Annandale High School, Annandale, VA
