Upcoming Concert: “John Mills Plays the Poetry of Cornelius Eady”

We have a very special concert coming up this Sunday, April 14th, 7pm at Recital Studio MRH 2.608:

Professor John Mills presents a concert of original music in collaboration with acclaimed poet, Cornelius Eady.

I’d like you to know that I’m celebrating the completion of a special Jazz+Poetry collaboration with the Pulitzer Prize-nominated poet/playwright Cornelius Eady. He has collected 13 poems, many jazz-themed, for which I’ve composed settings specific to the mood of each. It’s been wonderful, living with these brilliant poems in the recording studio, and now the CD project is mixed and mastered. Cornelius and I will perform it all live, thanks the supporting talents of UT Jazz faculty and alumni, as well as the COFA Doty Fellowship that first got the project rolling.

I hope that you can join us this Sunday, April 14, at 7pm in the Recital Studio.

– Dr. John Mills
