“Old World Elegy” Premiere and Reading at Poetry Foundation in Chicago

Richie Hofmann Poetry Foundation


Brian Baxter‘s gorgeous setting of my poem, “Old World Elegy,” premiered at the Poetry Foundation on May 10, 2013, performed by Angela Tomasino and the Chicago Q Ensemble.   I also read poems about my childhood obsession with Mozart.
