I had an extremely good time chatting it up with composer Melissa Dunphy about all things Melissa/Whitman/Colonial Philadelphia…and I even got to be privy to the privy! (You can hear about that in the lagniappe section of the interview.) Melissa is one of the 11 composers commissioned by LF for Carol of Words – Walt Whitman in Song, all premiering new songs this weekend, April 6 and 7. Well, she is fascinating and I guarantee, this concert is one you will not want to miss. Tickets Here.
