An Evening of Poetry and Music

Poems about Greece ~ Music from Greece

Phillip Resnick, a political scientist by profession, began writing poetry as a young man in Montreal.  His marriage to Andromache resulted in numerous stays in Thessaly – in Volos and in a village on adjacent Mt. Pelion - and rekindled his poetic inspiration.  He has published several collections of poems, many of which deal with his Greek experiences and memories.  For Pharos, Phillip will read an assortment of his Greek-themed poems, including several from his just-published book, Passageways.  Musicians Kate Gerson, Erika Gerson, and Laura Blumenthal are members of the Vancouver-based band Musiki Parea which specializes in traditional Greek and Turkish Music.  They will present musical interludes with songs from Epiros and Macedonia.
