Poems in the wild goes collaborative

The very talented musician (and all around stellar gal) Nat Bartsch has used Poem #21 and set it to music for part of a VCA concert series. I am very honoured, and having heard a rehearsal version and been rather moved, I think you all should go and hear the performance for yourself. It's free!

The collaborative piece will be performed on Thurs 4th October (that's this Thursday!) at 6pm.

Deets below.
