In celebration of National Poetry Month and the Women’s Vote Centennial, vocal ensemble The Meadowlark Project performs music by women composers, poets, and lyricists exploring ideas of womanhood, mortality, and progress. The recital features the premiere of “There Will Come Soft Rains,” a composition by KU doctoral student Allison McIntosh based on Sara Teasdale’s 1918 poem of the same title. The composition was commissioned by the Spencer Museum in conjunction with the exhibition "Audubon in the Anthropocene," which also draws inspiration from this poem.
