STILL WILL BE HEARDMusic by Liz Queler & Seth Farber Book by Liz Queler & Edna St. Vincent Millay
We were thrilled to have our theater piece, inspired by our song cycle "The Edna Project", commissioned and produced by Peak Performances at Montclair State University (NJ) in June (2014). We look forward to future productions.
During her father's last years suffering from Alzheimer's Disease, singer/composer Liz Queler discovered a new and unexpected refuge in the words of the poet Edna St. Vincent Millay.
Still Will Be Heard is the culmination of that burst of inspiration and renewed creativity. This new music theater piece features 17 of Millay’s poems set to Liz and her partner Seth Farber's eclectic blend of folk, rock, jazz, and bluegrass music. The songs, interspersed with spoken words culled from the writings of both women, take us on a journey by turns playful, dark, fierce, and beautiful.
" a joyful work celebrating the power of art to soothe. Perfection. Heartfelt and heartbreaking." - Jedediah Wheeler, Exec. Dir., Peak Performances
