poesia fotoWords in music-Poetic tones.


The recorder player and singer Ella Moray Williams has collaborated  with pianist Elena Koukhar to put together a program with poems set to music mixed with poetic instrumental music and improvisations. The idea for this synergy occurred at the idea that words and music together enhance expression. During a one- hour program, the audience is introduced to poets, musicians and composers, with anecdotes and background about the works performed.
