On Monday, Nov. 10, the University of Utah School of Music's New Music Ensemble released a live-stream performance of Professor of Music David Froom's "Yeats Songs." The two songs, using Yeats's poems, "The Wild Swans at Coole" and "Clothes of Heaven," are for soprano and violin. They were commissioned in 2014 for the 21st Century Consort (the Smithsonian Institution's New Music Group-in-Residence). This most recent (socially distanced) performance has now been released on YouTube, and can be found here:
