Lyric Fest adapts to music-making during a time of pandemic with a new format. Randall Scarlata, Laura Ward and Benjamin C.S. Boyle are presented in a 30 minute music, art, and documentary film on Edgar Allan Poe and his poetry, set by Benjamin C.S. Boyle. Excepts from Boyle’s “Lenoriana” song cycle, along with reflections on the poet, the poetry, and the songs by three artists, Benjamin, Randall, and Laura.
