Written by Tony Award-winning lyricist and composer, William Finn, this heart-felt song cycle addresses memory and loss with both compassion and humor, reminding the viewer of life’s fragility and joy. Guest performers Maureen Collins and James McClellan will join YSU students. A song cycle is a group of songs designed to be performed in sequence as a single entity. Usually all of the songs are by the same composer and reference a particular theme or story.
