The University of Alabama at Birmingham to present The Secret Exit premiere

The University of Alabama at Birmingham will present the world premiere of Lori's song cycle The Secret Exit on January 26, 2018 at 5:40 pm at Temple Emanu-El in Birmingham, AL. Admission is free.
The work was commissioned by the University for soprano Kristine Hurst-Wajszczuk and clarinetist Denise Gainey, and features the poetry of Nobel Laureate Nelly Sachs. Sachs escaped from Nazi Germany in 1940 and moved to Sweden, where she remained until her death. The cycle sets three of her poems: What rose out of the white leaves of your bodyWhen in Early Summer and Child.
The cycle was conceived of as a sequel to my Holocaust-themed song set I Never Saw Another Butterfly. The artists will also premiere the work in Belgium during the summer of 2018.
