Happy birthday and thank you Laura Pritchard

Laura Pritchard is the wonderful batik artist whose work sparked the poetry and music for our Waxing Poetic — In This Blue Room concert/art event this past weekend, with a brand new song cycle by our composer in residence Kile Smith on lyrics from poems inspired by Pritchard’s art. It also happens to be Laura Pritchard’s birthday today, so we wanted to wish her a very happy birthday and an upcoming year full of health, happiness, and beauty, along with our huge big THANK YOU for the inspiration for our unique Waxing Poetic event. Here she is, third from the left, from the Waxing Poetic preview party that we held in February:
