MUSIC ON THE MIND
Songs of mania, madness, and melancholy, including a new choral setting of Kay Redfield Jamison’s ground-breaking memoir, An Unquiet Mind. A new choral work by Harvey Brough & Justin Butcher
“A musical work that blends the voices of some of the finest poets in our language with the work of Kay Redfield Jamison, my own personal hero in the arena of bipolar disorder — well, that seems to me like a simply fantastic project.”
“It’s fantastically refreshing to have visionaries like Harvey Brough and Justin Butcher commit their art to an examination of one of our most precious possessions: our minds.”
Emma Thompson, Vox Holloway patron
