Humanities Seminar: Works in the Works – Music by Harris, Lyrics by Shakespeare


Matthew Harris’s award-winning Shakespeare Songs, Books I-VI is performed by choruses worldwide. Come hear him play selections and discuss the texts. Professor Harris’s contrarian approach to Shakespeare’s texts sometimes involves turning them into folk or even quasi-pop songs. Professor Harris will end with a preview of his work-in-the-works, Book VII, which premieres this spring.
