In honor of the centennial of Elizabeth Bishop’s birth in Worcester in 1911, the East Coast Contemporary Ensemble performed Elliott Carter’s settings of her poems. Lloyd Schwartz introduced and read the poems before each musical performance. The event was titled “A Mirror on Which to Dwell”: Elliott Carter‘s Settings of Six Poems by Elizabeth Bishop. It was held on Thursday, April 21, 2011 at 7 p.m. in Tilton Hall, on the 2nd floor of Higgins University Center.
This event was sponsored by Robert Tobin in his role as the Henry J. Leir Chair, with generous support from Clark University’s Higgins School of the Humanities, the Department of English, and programs in Communication and Culture, Women’s and Gender Studies, and Music. The event was part of a series of celebrations of the centennial of Elizabeth Bishop’s birth, coordinated by the Worcester County Poetry Association.
