Music Speaks…
Rogers Road by Margie GuyotGrace Episcopal Church
Traverse City, MI

Join Manitou Winds for a spring concert exploring the mystical pathway connecting words and music as poetry and prose from around the world are set aloft in music and song. From the unearthed texts of Native Americans to the zany, nonsensical poetry of Lewis Carroll, it will be an evening of unforgettable music.

The ensemble will join with guest musicians Emily Curtin Culler, soprano; Jessie Hood, soprano; Jean Coonrod, cello; and Susan Snyder, piano; to present an eclectic array of musical styles and poetry.

Special thanks to our 2017 Collaborating Arist, Margie Guyot, for donating use of her beautiful landscape (“Rogers Road”) for use in promoting our spring concert. You can see more of Margie’s exciting work in a special exhibit at the concert.

Admission is free. A freewill offering will be taken.
