Mending Wall

Something there is that doesn't love a wall —Robert Frost

Mending Wall is a fully staged concert exploring the meaning of walls in our world by giving musical form to questions about identity, community, division, and freedom. Soprano Tony Arnold and pianist Arturo O’Farrill join the PRISM Quartet in world premiere performances of works by four visionary composers—Martin Bresnick, George Lewis, Juri Seo, and O’Farrill—who take inspiration from poetry by Robert Frost, Keorapetse Kgositsile, Waly Salomão, and Guillermo Gómez-Peña. Directed by Jorinde Keesmaat with lighting design by Aaron Copp.

Free for Tri-Co. Reserve through the Arts Office: 10 a.m. to 6 p.m., Goodhart 200, 610-526-5300, or reserve online. Other guests, please buy tickets online or purchase by phone at 610-526-5300. For more information, email
