Beth Denisch, Composer in Residence at the University of Missouri – St. Louis and featured speaker at the Women in the Arts Festival at UMSL

Vocal Point, under the direction of Dr. James Henry, premiered “Love is, Love Says”. Denisch based her choral piece on Samuel B. Hanser’s two poems, “Love Is” and “Love Says” from his book “Many Blessings:  The Remembrance of One” (published posthumously,  2010).  “This song is meant to inspire and empower others to fill their lives with love,” according to Denisch, “it has been a blessing and healing experience to meditate on Sam’s words.”

This concert, exclusively Denisch’s compositions, was performed by UMSL faculty and other St. Louis performers:

This concert was part of the Women in the Arts Conference and Denisch’s Composer in Residency at the University of Missouri-St. Louis, J.C. Penney Conference Center Auditorium on November 11, 2011.    (*ECP: Paula Kasica, Ann Homann, Donita Bauer, Jeanine York Garesche, and Carole Lemire, Director)
