Rose and the Nightingale: The Spirit of the Garden
Presented by Jody Redhage, Sara Caswell, Laila Biali, and Leala Cyr
Rose & the Nightingale’s music is lyrical, energetic, and inspiring and features three part vocal harmonies, violin, cello, piano, trumpet, and percussion. Their latest CD, Spirit of the Garden, was inspired by botanical gardens the world over and the sense of contemplation and connection one can experience in these special spaces. All the lyrics in Spirit of the Garden are poems celebrating the nexus of spirituality and nature, and the ability to connect and feel a part of something greater through open and aware engagement with the natural world. Lyrics feature the words of living American poets and famous Japanese haiku masters. Rose & the Nightingale’s performances cut through to a deeper level of human connection through the energy of music.
